Featured autograph - Jairo Beras

Despite receiving a $4.5 million signing bonus in 2012 - Beras is probably still figuring out the nuances of playing the game, so his hitting numbers are underwhelming, particularly in the hitter friendly California League.

I've gotten him to sign just a few times and as a general greeting, he asks how you are doing - maybe the greeting isn't so unique or personal, though I don't usually expect it from foreign born players who might not have a good grasp of the English language.

I do want to say Beras is a Sharpie killer with the way he holds the pen with his knuckles and signs autographs - his 'form' is kind of unique and makes me cringe at the same time.
