Respect Players When Requesting Autographs

A lot of us like to think that baseball players owe us something or that they should give autographs to us fans at every moment. After all if there were no fans there would be no baseball players, or at least they would not make the amounts of money they do. We are the ones that go to the games, buy clothes, buy food and drinks during the games, etc. But, just because we fans make the sport of pro baseball such a big money enterprise doesn't mean that they owe us anything. Spending our money and time on baseball is a personal choice. Yet it's important to respect players, managers and coaches when requesting their autographs.

We have to remember that baseball players are human just like us and we must treat them like we'd treat a friend or neighbor, even if we don't always get it back quite as fully. You cannot get mad and curse out a player for not signing your baseball, because you really don’t know the reason why they are denying you. Like I said, they are humans and they also have bad days, you never know what could be going on in their lives at that particular time when you ask for an autograph. They could be suffering from a loss in the family, have a physical ailment, be going through a divorce, or something even more simple like being in a hurry to go pick up their children at school. On the field, they have pre-game duties that must come first.

My advice to you is that you respect baseball players just like you would respect any other person you care about. Sometimes players notice the fact that you are respecting them, and seeing that, can get them to sign one of your baseballs. And, if that is not the case, if they do not sign your ball, just move on. The point is to keep the fun in collecting baseballs!
