It seems that Rickey is once again becoming a little more of a public figure, something that I can only see continuing to increase as his eventual Hall of Fame induction creeps closer.
I just received an announcement today that Rickey will be signing autographs and taking photos at a "Home Run For Education" fair, held this Saturday, September 20th at JFK High School in Fremont, CA. It looks like Rickey will be signing FREE autographs from 11am - 12pm. The event is a free fair educational event sponsored by the Oakland A's and their future home, Cisco Field, as well as the Fremont Chamber of Commerce.
If anyone living in the Bay Area happens to go to the fair, or has plans to go, please send me an e-mail. I'd love to get copies of any pictures from the event. It's not too often nowadays that a future Hall of Famer, and one of the greatest athletes of our generation signs autographs for free.
