    Does anyone recognize this "signature"?

    I looked at 2000 rosters for both teams and didn't really see anything close. It looks like "Tony Mc…" to me. I don't know if it is a player, coach, celebrity or just someone's name? It came with a fairly large lot of signed cards, mostly 90s, that I got a few years ago. I put it away when I got it and never thought about it again until today. Would like to ID it and if it is someone who played, offer it to someone who may be interested in it, as I am not.

    This is from a Pirate spring training field in Florida.

    I may be reaching here but is it possible it is a relative of Bill McKecknie. The player the stadium is named after. That sure looks like that could be the last name.

    I'll go with this guy Larry Mccall

    He played for the Yankees and ended up with the Rangers

    Thanks for the try, I appreciate any help i can get, but I would have to say that is not the case. Looking at his career, he would have been with the Orioles minor league system in 2000 and his autograph is very easy to read based on examples that pop up.
