I'm with Greyson on the Twins. Speaking of autographs, I waited outside Metropolitan Stadium after sneaking under a fence into games. The players came out dressed in suits and would walk you to their car with their arm on your shoulder.

Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison, Zoilo, Tony Oliva. They all autographed my baseball mitt and I went out and played with it. It didn't end up in a glass case, it just got tossed after much use.

It is strange to run into these guys today in grocery stores and softball fields as ordinary citizens.
