Eddie Zosky

I met him at Englebert Complex, the Toronto Blue Jays spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida.

This is a day that I’ll never forget. It was March 4, 1992. My senior class skip day. Days earlier I had asked Rob Ducey if he could donate any items to the East Lake Little League silent auction. He said he would, so I told him I was going to see the Blue Jays practice later that week. I get down there, see Rob, and he asks the security guard to let me in. Rob gave me a tour of the clubhouse, while all the players were still in there. He then invited me to sit on the bleachers and watch the players practice. He also gave me some great stuff to donate. The East Lake Little League was very thankful.

The next several autographs were all from this day. The players would just come over to me and sign before heading back into the clubhouse. Eddie signed a 1992 Fleer card #348.
