Re: Experiences w/ballplayers-Good and Bad?
I have been fortunate enough to have huge conection with a guy you could call an agent. I have been to Adam Dunn's apartment (it was like 50 degrees), went to Big Papi's house before and after stardom, Manny Ramirez (his girlfriend was FINE), Jacques Jones, Shannon Stewart, Torii Hunter (really cool), Victor Martinez, Juan Rivera, Filepe Lopez before he was big, Jose Guillen (nice but that guy was crazy), Matt Lawton (real cool), I went into the Phillies lockerroom (kinda wierd) and talked to Jimmy Rollins at his locker and my dad almost got hit by Pat Burrell, and some other guys.
I tell one of my dad's stories with Pete
My dad and his girlfriend back in the early 80's were out one night after a concert or something at about 3:00 AM. They were hungry so they went into Perkins. The place was empty except there was Pete and Pete Jr over at a table. My dad was a singer so his girlfriend was pretty good looking so he decided to sit away from Pete and didnt look over at him. His girlfriend says she has to go to the bathroom which is right pass Pete. My dad tells her "dont look at him, I dont know what he'll do, just dont look at him." So she gets up, walks straight pass Pete and the whole time Pete is starring at her. When she gets past he turns and pats Pete Jr on the shoulder ( about 10-15 years old) and says "now that's a nice a**."
