Re: Writing to Ballplayers
I've done this a lot over the years. I've gotten Dale Murphy, Manny Trillo (a personal favorite player of mine), Tom Browning, Jose Rijo, Wily Mo Pena, Joe Nuxhall, Carlos Delgado, Pat Burrell, Chipper Jones, Scott Williamson, Sean Casey, many others. The only person I've found who won't sign through the mail is Ken Griffey Jr. (I'm not knocking him, he's one of my favorite players of all time). Even Barry Bonds occassionally signs through the mail.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
