Hello everyone! I have been a big fan of this message board for some time and have even registered under a couple different names in attempts to post...I finally read the "about us" section and am finally aware of why I couldn't post. Good job in keeping the site productive and useful!
I am from Ohio and am a very big fan. I'm about 2-3 hours away from the stadium and try to make it to about 6-8 games a year. Joey Votto is my favorite player. Last year, I went to a game and I had my 5 year old son with me. We had tremendous seats and we were just watching batting practice in awe when Joey came walking toward us. We wasn't yelling for him or standing in the autograph area, but he stopped, signed a ball, and handed it to my son. He immediatly became my favorite player.
