Friendly Encounters

This is a weekly feature highlighting my friends who have met celebrities.

I have previously written about Jason and his site, The Writer's Journey.  Jason's site is heavy on the Cincinnati Reds, but also features other great baseball stuff and some other random interesting topics.  It's really done well and always worth a look.  He even answered my request and made a 2010 Topps card for longtime backup catcher (and personal favorite) Bill Plummer.
Jason and his son are regular attendees at RedsFest and this year was no different.  They met a lot of great former Reds, like Tom Browning, Eric Davis and Chuck Harmon (the first African-American to play for the Reds).
They also met one current member of the Reds, pitcher Bronson Arroyo.  Arroyo happens to be my favorite Red.  Arroyo signed his cd and a card for Joshua.
Jason ended his report by writing that they had a blast and look forward to next year's event.  I always look forward to the reports and posts about RedsFest.  It's great to see so many former Reds.  Maybe someday, they'll post a picture after meeting Bill Plummer!
