So on Friday September 13, 2019 I went to the Billy Graham Library and had dinner with Darryl Strawberry. To my surprise there were 300 plus people. I thought it would be smaller and more personal. For $25 I can't complain much. The food was superb! As everyone was eating I asked our umpire ( waiter) about the big sign that was up as you walk in. He said he wasn't sure and pointed out the lady that I needed to talk too. So I approached her and asked what they were going to do with the sign after everything was over? She said to find her after. So I sat down they started playing a game catching foam strawberries in a glove on there head which was fun. He came out and preached which I enjoyed very much!! They announced that he would sign 1 autograph for everyone. So I was 6th in line a lady that was helping looked at me and said no posed pictures i was by myself so I didn't get a picture with him which I am sad about. He signed my baseball and I asked him to date it and he did I shook his hand and told him I appreciate him and he said I appreciate you and thanks for coming out. I saw my umpire holding open the last door I asked him where the lady was he said he didn't know to try and find her. So I did she look right at me and had the foam strawberries in her had I asked if I could have one she said yes and as far as the sign she said you can have it. To just grab it and not make a big deal. I said I can do that. On the way out the umpire was still there I told him what she sad he said I trust you. I grabbed it turned to him said I appreciate you he said nice grab everyone was looking at me like I committed a felony. Went to my car to the hotel called my wife who stayed at the hotel and told her to come outside. She did a I brought out the sign she was laughing so hard!! So it was a great night one I will never forget!!
As far as the 1981 Lynchburg mets Brook Treakle postcard. I told my wife about it she starting bid and bid till she on her account so I was blown away about how far she went and grateful that she dine that for me!! Sorry for the long post I just wanted to share. Please comment and enjoy the pictures.
