Bob Feller Autograph - Legends Night, Bright House Networks Field

Autograph: Bob Feller
Date: 3/14/2004
Location: Brighthouse Networks Field, Clearwater, FL
Event: Legends Game

I am not positive this was at the legends game, but I do know it was at BNF in Clearwater, FL. Feller had a booth set up in the concourse down the left field line. He signed the ball I had caught the day before at a Phillies spring training game. He signed it '"HOF '04" even though he was inducted long before 2004. I'm not sure why he went with the current year rather than the year he was inducted. Anyway, he was a nice old man and always generous to sign.

The charity Legends or Celebrity Softball games are gold mines for great autographs. Everyone is out there to have a good time and promoters know more people will buy tickets if there is more player involvement.
