Jose Lind

I met him at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida in 1994, when the Kansas City Royals came to play the Philadelphia Phillies in a spring training game.
During the game, my brother, Brian and I were both thirsty. Unfortunately, we were a dollar short to afford a Coke. Jose overheard us and pulled a dollar out of his pocket and offered it to us. We declined, but he wouldn't take no for an answer, he said "I'm going to throw this dollar over the fence, if you want it, pick it up, if not, leave it for someone else." Sure enough, he tossed it over and our thirst that day was quenched.
Chico, if you're reading this, e-mail me your address or give me your PayPal info and I'll pay you back.

Jose signed a 1993 Upper Deck card #309.
