Photo: Ferguson Jenkins Charity Autograph Booth at Chicago Cubs Games
At recent games, the others signing autographs have included Rollie Fingers, Gaylord Perry and other baseball greats.
This photo shows some youngsters with baseballs to autograph. The profile of Ferguson Jenkins in a red shirt is in the shadow of this iPhone photo.
People obtaining autographs make donations to medical research charitable causes for whom the ballplayers are donating heir services. They also chat with the fans.
Fans also line up at the entrance to the stadium and along the sides of the field and many ballplayers will sign autographs during Spring training. It is a more friendly and casual atmosphere than exists during the regular season.
This week we are showing photos of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
