I took a much needed personal day off from work and my daughter, sister, and I went down to Pittsburgh for the Pirates Alumni Autograph session. The Pirates have about 6 - 7 of these a year and in years past I have gone to most of them but unfortunately this was my first of the year. Here are the items that we were able to get signed. They cut the line off before we could get back in again - I had more stuff to get signed.
