Player Appearance Recap : Bill Madlock @ Harry's Dugout On 4.13.2014

Lunch was consumed at El Teyepac and now it was time to head south for the second of two signings this past Sunday. Back to Harry's Dugout for yet another signing. Love this place as the atmosphere is always chill and Eddie the owner is always pleasant and there is never a problem here. Just autographs and fun.

Bill Madlock was the subject of today's autograph signing and I have never personally seen him do a signing in the Los Angeles area prior to Sunday. Had to make sure I swung by and acquired the autograph of the four time batting champ. Arrived and there were no more than a few people milling around. Went over to see what photos were for sale and picked one of the two Dodgers ones. Went over to see Eddie and paid him the fee and talked for a few minutes. Bill was just signing away for what I assume was store inventory as I approached the table and said hello. I asked for him to sign the photo in silver ink as I think blue on this particular photo wouldn't look too good.

Also, a Dodger at one time but a Pirate at heart. Nice hat Bill.

After the photo was done I asked Bill if he wouldn't mind a photo with me and he said no problem.

Said thank you to Bill and headed out after another successful Sunday in autograph collecting. In the span of just under 90 minutes we were in line for autograph one, went inside and had a sit down lunch and then drove to get another autograph and were back in the car to drive home. If only all appearances were this simple.

Thank you again to Harry's for hosting another fine event and thank you to Bill for coming out and signing for fans. 


  1. Nice. He even put his nickname in there. I totally forgot about this signing. Was thinking of going too.

    1. It was perfect timing with Reuss's signing as I didnt have to make 2 trips. Dee and LoDuca in two weeks in that area
