Featured autograph - Domingo Ayala

I'm not sure what to make of Ayala's talents as a baseball player but I guess his routine works - and maybe a guilty pleasure as he spoofs the gestures of Latin American ballplayers in professional baseball.

He appeared at a home run derby to benefit former Arizona State baseball player Cory Hahn last Saturday afternoon in Placentia California - I saw him walking around and I was going to have him sign a dummy card, but he had promotional pictures to give away, which he personalized, inscribed 'pop the chain' and signed.

He seems a little smaller in person but the thing about his 'gimmick' is he does resemble a baseball player[if even just a little bit] - he hit a home run in the derby and it was kind of cool seeing him go deep.

With a little bit of identity theft going on with at least couple of players from the Dominican Republic - I would love to see a scenario where Ayala is exposed to have a different name and age...that maybe where the 'natural progression' of his 'career' goes.
