Mitch Lukevics

I met him at the Florida State League Hall of Fame induction ceremony on November 10, 2015 at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater, Florida.
Mr. Lukevics was being honored for his work as a Farm Director.

He seemed genuinely happy when I approached him for an autograph. I congratulated him on his induction and then handed him my card. He was surprised to see which card it was, then he told me where the particular picture was taken. He then went on to mention members of that team, including manager Bill Evers and a player who would later become a manager, Jared Sandberg.
I thanked him for his time and he thanked me for asking.

Mitch signed a 1996 Tampa Bay Devil Rays Team Set card.
