Cedric Ceballos Autograph Signing

The Optometry Practice of Dr. Alex Corbin Liu hosted a private signing featuring Cedric Ceballos. In case you don’t remember Cedric, he played 11 seasons in the NBA, primarily for the Phoenix Suns. Only patients and friends were among the invited guests for this private meet and greet.

When I arrived at the practice in Rowland Heights there was a small group of people already waiting for Cedric. A few minutes later Cedric came out from the back room and began signing our items. As he signed our items we had the opportunity to talk to him and ask questions.

Here are some of my signed items.

Dr. Liu gave Cedric an eye exam. As you can see he really enjoyed himself.

Rawhide @ 66ers

The Visalia Rawhide made a visit to San Bernardino for a three game series against the 66ers. I took baseball cards of former major leaguer Gil Heredia with me since he is the current pitching coach for the Rawhide.

I arrived early and waited for Gil to come out of the dugout. When Gil made his way onto the field I called him over to sign my items.

I honestly believe Gil has a strong resemblance to former major league star Nomar Garciaparra, except Gil is much larger around the waist area.

  • Member of the Arizona Wildcats 1986 College World Series team.
