Patrick Corbin and Paul Goldschmidt 2013 All-Star Game Autographed Photo

After getting Patrick Corbin to sign this picture on Wednesday, I was able to get Paul Goldschmidt to sign it tonight. I think it turned out amazing!

I didn't think it was going to happen tonight because we used a babysitter for our youngest and when we do that we usually don't leave early enough to get autographs. We got to the ballpark about 6:25 pm for a 6:40 pm start. Our seats were in the upper level, so when the usher asked to see our tickets I asked if we could just go down to try to get autographs. I was somewhat surprised that he said okay since it was so close to game time. When we got there the players were just finishing stretching and then they had the National Anthem. Only one player came over to sign autographs and it was Goldschmidt. He signed for probably about 20 people and gave me a great signature (it's more than his normal signature)!

We stayed until the top of the 8th. The D-Backs ended up losing to the Giants 1 -0, but I couldn't be happier about getting Goldschmidt to sign the picture!

Goldschmidt Happened Again!

My boys and I were at the Diamondbacks game last night. We had amazing seats, 5 rows behind the D-Backs dugout and the D-Backs won! Can it get any better than that? Yes, it can! My two boys each ended up with 3 game-used baseballs, 4 of which came from Paul Goldschmidt! Oh and Goldschmidt hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth and a walk-off game-winning home run in the bottom of the 11th!

I know it says Row 11, but this section the rows start at 7.

Here are my boys with a couple of balls from Goldschmidt!

Here is a link for the walk-off home run!

Goldschmidt got a well deserved bubble bath during the post game interview and guess who got some of the gum!

Paul Goldschmidt Bobblehead

My family and I went to the D-Backs game last night. They lost 4-1 to the Mets, but it was Goldschmidt Bobblehead night so that was cool!
