Default What a night!

I work for a college wood bat summer league, and we had out celerity golf tournament fundraiser a few weeks ago. I was able to meet/hang out with Hunter Pence, Fred McGriff, Gary Sheffield, Davey Johnson and a bunch of other guys. Unfortunately, I was working so I couldn't get any pics to remember the night.

Fast forward to this weekend, and Davey is having a celeb tourney of his own to raise money for a local non-profit. He invited my whole office staff out to the event, and it was awesome! I was pumped to meet Justin Verlander and Tim Kurkjian, but they didn't make it to the dinner. I did, however, have the opportunity to meet:
Larry the Cable Guy

Hal of Famer Brooks Robinson

and the real icing on the cake:

Bryce Harper! (with my fellow Florida League staff)


Other guys I met (without a pic) ... Adam LaRoche, Mike Rizzo and David Eckstein.

Topped it off with a concert from Sister Hazel (what up 90s!?)

It was a really cool experience that I will definitely never forget

Great story and pictures. Brooks looks a lot older than I thought he was. I can't believe Topps has gotten him to sign so many autographs in the last couple years. Great that you got to meet Harper!
