After getting Jay Bruce’s autograph the previous night in Bloomington, the RHM crew was up bright and early to head to the Indianapolis stop at Castleton Mall. This time, our target was Homer Bailey, who had replaced Bruce as the major league player for the day.
The Castleton line was super long. When we arrived, the autograph line was already moving. The Reds had apparently showed up on time and kept the opening comments brief. The number of people dwarfed the size of the crowd at last year’s event. I guess having a winning year is important in attracting fans.
