On January 27, 2007 Jim & Diane went to the Baltimore Convention Center to see some of the best who ever played the game.

We concentrated on the O's but there were other greats there including Hall of Fame inductee Tony Gwynn and Hall of Famers Johnny Bench, Gaylord Perry, Robin Roberts, Mike Schmidt, Carlton Fisk, Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Paul Molitor, Orlando Cepeda, Tom Seaver, Don Mattingly and Rod Carew



Of course Cal was the star of the show and he worked hard all day
signing autographs and having his picture taken with the attendees.

I had him sign a picture I had taken with him last year.

Cal concentrates very hard as he autographs my picture.
