Lineup & Game Notes (July 9, 2011)

Before getting to the lineup & game notes some quick background.

There is a collector in the Quad Cities who has several uniforms signed by players who have been enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  He has donated many of them to the River Bandits.  These jerseys are decorations on the press box/suite level at Modern Woodmen Park.

I have taken pictures of two of those uniforms which happened to catch my eye.  As always, click for a larger image:

Hank Aaron - Braves. His signature only.

Pete Rose and everything he has ever done in baseball & his signature & "Charlie Hustle" & "Hit King" & #4,256

Apologies for the glare on the second photo. I couldn’t block out the light and a straight on photo with me in the reflection on the glass would have been…creepy.

Not as creepy as the fact that there were 500 of those #14 jerseys made, but still creepy…
