A family atmosphere is a concept many athletes hold near and dear. By the time a season comes to its conclusion, they will refer to their teammates as another family.

Collecting autographs all started probably when you were a child. For me, it was a Nolan Ryan baseball in 1974. Going to Angel Stadium with my mom and dad, I would grab a baseball that I had been playing catch with, not thinking that maybe someday it would be worth something if I got it signed. Nolan Ryan was my favorite player — being able to control a game with your pitching skills was pretty cool and being able to throw no-hitters — even better. I would hang over the fence by the dugout to see where Ryan was and where he might come out and sign autographs. It always seemed to me that people that were there also seeking autographs were getting the programs they had purchased when they entered the stadium signed. I figured since he played on the field with a baseball, maybe he would sign my baseball. Not only did he end up signing my ball, but he also signed my glove, too. And believe it or not, I played catch with that ball and glove until most of the autograph wore off!
