Mike Piazza’s signing at Vroman’s

So since I already had the book I decided to go to the Mike Piazza signing.   I drove to work so that I could start work earlier and get out earlier.   I told my boss before I left that if I did not show up on Thursday is because I might be in jail.  haha. 

I found Cindy and her husband were the first two people in line in letter.  I don’t know how far the letters went but I saw the group for D.   I was probably the 10th person in line for letter A.   When I got there I think there were about 50 people there. 

I waited until Mike signed my book.  

Then I leaned over and told him “Maybe you were misunderstood in the book, but I think you should apologize to Vin Scully” 

He listened to me and he said “oh… It wasn’t bad”  I wished that Mike would have elaborated but by this time, I already had to move.  There was this big guy to my left there making sure the people were moving right after they signed the book. 

 I do collect baseball books.  I ordered them online, or buy them from SABR, at bookstores, thrift stores or at Friends of the Library bookstores.   I do need another bookshelf. 

Back to taking the train tomorrow.   I do prefer to take the train than to drive to work.  It also gives me a chance to do some reading.

Emma, you’re my hero for telling Piazza, to his face, that he should apologize. Vin Scully is a gentleman and one of the biggest baseball fans ever. He would never say something that would damage a player, especially not one of his Dodgers. What a sad, bitter man Mike Piazza turned out to be.

With Vin Scully having graduated from my high school, I think I’m obligated to thank you for doing this. So … thank you.

Maybe you should have gone back up the line and told each person to tell Piazza to apologize to Vin. That might have made him realize what a big mistake he made.

I am so glad you said something to him Emma, I knew you would. Unfortunately I soured on Mike a long time ago, when this whole contract thing played out. It always seemed like he whined about not being respected. It’s really a shame but just shows me that a leopard doesn’t change his spots and now other Dodger fans are witnessing what I knew about from him for so long.

Kristen, You and I all fans that listen to Vin know that Vin would not do that.

Mateo, I did not know you went to the same High School that Vin went! Wow!.

Kristin,
I am disappointed in him to say the least. I was seeing with different eyes this time. He does whine in the book.
.
Brian, He had some fans there both males and females. Females were looking at him with adoring eyes. I saw a few Mets fans too. I was surprised tht the fans in front of me and in back were not aware of what Mike says in the book about Vin Scully. I pointed to them where it was and I played the interview for a lady.
.
Time to get back to my Brooklyn players posts. The next one is Don Lund. From what I have been reading about him, he is a class act, a true gentleman, humble and a great coach that his students at Michigan State saw him as a father figure.
