This past Saturday, I took the family to our last Durham Bulls game of the 2015 season. It was a great day to be at the ballpark. I went autograph hunting with my daughter, spent time with my family, and saw some fireworks.
We even got to see one of my favorite 'newer' Rays players, Steven Sousa Jr., on a rehab assignment. It was a great night! I think I'm already ready for next season to begin. Here are the autos I was fortunate enough to procure.
In hindsight, I kinda wish I had gotten Souza to sign a copy of his 2015 Topps Chrome, but I had the IL All Star set card from last year and I figured that was a pretty good choice. I was lucky enough to get one more signature though.
Snell has been one of e best pitchers in the minors this season. Across multiple levels, he posted an ERA of 1.33. He was a lot of fun to watch after getting the promotion to Triple A. This is his Cream of the Crop Bowman Chrome mini refractor from 2013. The scan doesn't really do it justice at all. I'm hoping that this kid is going to be the next in the long line of homegrown Rays pitchers when he makes his debut, likely next season.
