The Indians signed 1500 items for charity, Wang signs dozens of items fans sent him via mail and the Braves were passing out autographs and batting gloves. We presume at some point there was actual baseball being played.
In recent days, Tribe players have signed 1,542 balls, bats and jerseys for Cleveland Indians Charities.
As players autographed each item, a local police officer stood by to attach a label authenticating the piece of memorabilia. Officers perform the same duty when items are signed at Jacobs Field.
Before the season begins, two hundred or more items will be autographed and sent back to Cleveland.
From the China Post, breathlessly covering the daily life of Chien Ming Wang:
Wang, a 26-year-old from Tainan, Taiwan, spends about 20 minutes every day answering such mail, mostly photos, cards and baseballs to be signed. He patiently seals every envelope in the meticulous way he does everything. When he was a child, he used to help in his parents’ utensils business by packing spoons and chopsticks into cartons.
And this from the Orlando Sentinel on the fans interaction with players.
