Will Clark

I met him at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida when the Texas Rangers came to play the Philadelphia Phillies in a spring training game in 1996.

This was one of my most memorable autograph experiences. I knew the visitor's side clubhouse manager, so he invited my brother and I to hang out in the clubhouse and help out. Around the 3rd or 4th inning, Will Clark walks in by himself, as his day was finished. I looked up in awe as I was hoping to get him to sign a picture for me. He looks at me and yells with a booming voice, "WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU LOOKING AT!?" I immediately start stumbling over my words. He then starts laughing and says, "I'm just f***ing with you."

Will signed an 8x10 photo.
