PLEASE READ ALL.......The 2010 MLB All Star game is being held in Anaheim this year and Major League Baseball puts on an event called "Fanfest" for the public. The event costs between $25-$30 a person for admission and one of the PERKS in the advertisements is that you get the opportunity to meet some Hall Of Fame players with all autographs being FREE with your paid admission. For the most part the players were great about signing and posing for photos (Gaylord Perry, Juan Marichal, etc.) Until it came time for Gary Carter. People lined up about an hour or two before he got there just to hear after he arrived that he WOULD NOT SIGN ANYTHING FOR FANS except a white piece of paper! He did however sign for SOME FANS IF THEY DONATED MONEY TO HIS CHARITY!!!! A lot of people left after waiting in line out of anger because they were selling his memorabilia (8x10 photos, baseball cards, baseballs,etc.) that people thought he would sign...especially since every other player there was doing so. The people working the event apologized and said that it wasn't supposed to be this way and they were unaware that he was going to do something like this. A few people ALLEGEDLY over heard his agent expressing dissatisfaction that there was no profit being made...he must have meant BESIDES WHAT THE MLB ALREADY PAYS these players to show up and do this in the first place. Well I waited in line (over 2 hours) anyways with my son and little brother who had already purchased 8x10 pictures in hopes of getting his autograph. The video shows what happened next. If you watch you'll see that GARY NEVER EVEN LOOKS AT THE KIDS BUT RATHER JUST GOES ON AND ON ABOUT HIS MEDIOCRE CAREER IGNORING THEIR OUTSTRETCHED ARMS WITH HIS PICTURE. AT ONE POINT....AFTER HE REALIZES HE MAY NOT WANT THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE HE DECIDES TO ACTUALLY SIGN THE PICTURE WHICH HE FOLLOWS UP BY ANGRILY SAYING, "NOW YOU'RE GETTING YOUR WAY!" I can only assume that by this he meant getting his autograph? Maybe I'm wrong....but that was the point of him being hired to appear wasn't it? Ironically, Gary hands out some sort of HOME MADE BASEBALL CARDS with this writing on the back....."The Baseball Hall of Fame is something every player dreams about, but being a member of God's Hall of Fame is the greatest achievement of all. God offers each of us the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. When we accept God's gift of salvation, our name is written in The Book of Life, guaranteeing us a place in heaven forever." "I made that decision during spring training in 1973, and prayed asking Jesus to come into my heart as Lord and Savior. It was then that I first realized that when Jesus died on the cross, he died for me and paid for my sins. Accepting his payment was all I needed to do. I couldn't earn my way into heaven. You can become a member of God's Hall of Fame too, by making the same decision today." IM SORRY GARY, BUT I THINK YOUR ACTIONS TODAY TOWARDS 2 LITTLE CHILDREN AND THE REST OF YOUR FANS WAS THE LEAST CHRISTIAN THING YOU COULD HAVE DONE. I don't recall Jesus being in it for the MONEY! You are a SAD representative of Major League Baseball and should be ashamed of yourself. It's no wonder why the NBA is becoming so popular.
