Harrisburg Senators at Trenton Thunder

This past Saturday I drove down to Trenton to see the Senators and the Thunder play. It was Game 11 on the season for me. My main goal for the day was Aaron Judge.
I got to the stadium around noon time and only found a few guys there. Which was a little surprising. But, then later found out the Senators had been in town earlier in the season.
The other reason was that Aaron Judge does not sign outside before the game.
Between outside before and after as well as inside. I was able to get the following
Alex Smith, 1 card. Alex signed as a free agent in 2012
Mark Montgomery, 1 card. Mark was a 11th rd pick in 2011. Has been bouncing back and forth between AA and AAA for the last 3 seasons and lost his prospect status.
Gary Sanchez, 1 card. Gary signed as a free agent in 2010 at the age of 17 and is currently ranked as the 7th in the Yankee system
Greg Bird, 1 card. Greg was a 5th rd pick in 2011 by the Yankees and is currently ranked 4th in the Yankees system. This past fall. Greg was named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League
Ali Castillo, 3 cards. Ali signed as a free agent in 2008 by the Yankees
Cito Culver, 2 cards. Cito was a 1st rd pick in 2010 by the Yankees and was once ranked in the top 30 prospects in the Yankees system. But, has since slipped and is no longer thought as a prospect.
Dan Fiorito, 1 card. Dan is a Bronx native and signed as a free agent in 2013 and has played in brief stints win AAA in the past 2 seasons.
Eric Jagielo. 1 card. Eric was a 1st rd pick in 2013 by the Yankees, 26th overall and has been moving his way thru the Yankees system and is currently ranked 8th in the Yankees system
Aaron Judge, 8x10 Aaron was a 1st rd pick in 2013 by the Yankees, 32nd overall and has been moving his way thru the Yankees system and is currently ranked 8th in the Yankees system. Is also ranked 53rd by the Baseball America and 68th by MLB.com as a prospect. Aaron personalized my photo.
Mark Payton, 1 card. Mark was a 7th rd pick in 2014 and has also been moving quickly thru the Yankees system'
Gene "Stick" Michaels, SS OMLB. Gene Michael currently works for the Yankees and was charting the game behind the plate. I waited till after the game to ask him to sign.. Gene spent 10 years in the majors after signing as a free agent in 1959 by the Pirates. Gene spent 1966 with the Pirates, then the Dodgers in 1967 after being traded for Maury Wills, then his contract was purchased by the Yankees in 1967. Gene played for the Yankees till 1974 and signed with the Tigers in 1975. Gene retired after the 1975 season and has spent time in numerous positions in a number of Major League Organizations. Gene managed the Yankees during the 1981 and 1982 seasons, the the Cubs in 1986 and 1987

On Harrisburg I was able to get the following
Devin Ivany, 2 cards
Austin Voth, 8x10
Pedro Severino, 8x10
Shawn Pleffner, 3 cards
Derrick Robinson, 2 cards







I think I had an off night at an affiliated game only getting 22 autographs. This brings my season total to 225

Not as many as usual, sure, but the quality was certainly there. Nice job on Judge, Bird, Jagielo, and Stick!
