Pat Neshek: Pitcher for the Twins
This is one of my favorite responses. Pat Neshek is a pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. He also has a web site and is an autograph collector himself. His website is:
When I wrote to him I asked him if he could send a baseball with a note to the kids on it. At the time he was playing in AAA so the baseball is an International League official ball with a great note that says,
“If you want something bad enough when you are young & don’t stop thinking about it everyday til you get older, your dreams will come true!!!”
A couple interesting things to point out, first, notice on his signature that he actually draws in the baseball seams in the letter P. Also, He is a submarine pitcher which is how I pitched in college. He is much better than I was. Pretty cool to have a letter on a baseball form a guy that is currently playing in the playoffs!
