My Florida Marlins Spring Training Report – Part #6 – Dan Uggla Is The Best!!!

The lone member of the media at practice was the MLB Network.  None of their big-name, on-air talent was there but I did chat it up with a few of their workers.  The lady that appeared to be in charge told me that she was conducting 2 interviews – the first was going to be Dan Uggla.

Around 1:00, Uggla made his way out of the clubhouse and headed for the makeshift interview area that they had set up.  But first he made a little detour and signed for about 6 of us that stood waiting for him.

I was the last one to get him, and I put myself into a position to talk to him for a minute.

Our Dialogue:

30-Year Old Cardboard – Hey Dan, on a personal note, I sent you a picture of me and my son that we got taken with you at the FanFest a few weeks ago.  I wanted to let you know that I got the picture last night at home and it looks great.  I cannot ‘Thank You’ enough for doing that for us.  It really means a lot to me, and I appreciate you taking the time to send it back to me so quickly.

Dan Uggla – Oh yeah, I remember that.  I’ m glad it turned out well.

30-YOC – Thanks again Dan.  As a dad I cannot tell you how special that piece is to me.  Best of luck this season!

DU – No problem.  See you at the ballpark.

Right after signing these 2 beauties for me, he was off to his interview for the MLB network.
