Default Baseball TTM Question Responses

Whenever I send out TTMs, I always include a few questions. Most of the time I don't get responses, but the older players sometimes respond. So far I've gotten two old Red Sox players, and pitching prospect Cody Buckel.

I thought it would be fun to share the responses we've gotten from players.

Here are mine:

The first one is from Dalton Jones, the middle one is from Chuck Schilling, and the last is from Cody Buckel.



I look forward to seeing your letters!

Here's a new idea...don't read them! Then you won't have to waste your time right a snarky response, and we won't have to waste our time reading them...

C'mon, man. Lighten up a bit. Nobody make you click on this thread. It's not like you opened it expecting to see that Topps allowed to share it's license with all the other companies again.

Nice returns, OP! I include some questions on index cards myself.

yeah if I wanted to avoid any thread in the baseball section that has to do with TTM, I probably wouldn't click on one that has TTM in the title.
I think the thread is more "baseball" related than it is "TTM"

thank you OP for sharing. I'm going to start sending questions out with letters now!

Here's a response I got from William Carmona (Phillies prospect) when asking him how his team (Stony Brook SeaWolves) responded when they lost game 1 to LSU in the Super Regionals a couple years back.




Also, here's one I got from Kevin Gausman (LSU pitcher). Not an answer to a question, but an inscription when I said I was a SeaWolves fan:

It's not at my room right now, but Daniel Camarena wrote me back a nice letter last year about San Diego (we're both from here).

That's a great idea. I need to do that when I send out my TTM requests

Great responses guys. I recommend sending questions, most won't answer, but you never know!

Let me get this straight, you entered the thread and made a &$^hole comment and you didn't even read what the poster wrote? That's a whole new level to me.....

I cant imagine how buckel has a "hardest hitter he's faced" since everyone who faces him gets a hit

I love sending questionnaires to players, and have gotten over 300 back. Some are posted in my TTM thread but after a while I decided to post just the autos.

Now what you don't know, OP, is that 300 question returns is a horrible success percentage. Mostly due to the fact the Noah gets 1,000 TTM returns per week.
