Default Twins game tomorrow

Tomorrow I get to go on the field for batting practice for the twins game against the Royals, hoping to get to meet some players and maybe get some autographs, has anyone done this before? If so, do players usually talk with you or just ignore you?

I have done it a few times here with the Diamondbacks got autographs each time and Andre Ethier remembered me from a tour I gave him on base and went out of his way to get Matt kemp to sign my jersey. The players have always been really cool everytime.

That's so sweet Chase. Try to get Mauer, Willingham, and Morneau.

It's actually a pretty common thing. Most teams offer it in their tour packages.

How'd you do? When I spent a day at Spring Training with the Twins, most of them were relatively nice. Except Mauer and Willingham...they weren't.
