Thats good news he deserved it with the Fall he is having. I plan on making that game, I attended the game last Saturday in Mesa. Was able to speak with a couple of the Cubs.
I asked Black to compare the Yankees Organization to the Cubs, his reply: No contest, Cubs by far.
Also was able to get all the Cubs autographs on a ball, except David Garner. That’s three years running on Cubs AFL Autographs, its a nice collection so far.

Aloha jasper, that means you got Contreras too?! I hope one day to get down there for the Fall league as well. Mahalo!
