Friendly Encounters: Ron Kittle, Carlton Fisk, Harold Baines and Val Capone

This is a weekly series about friends who have met celebrities.

Val Capone is one of my favorite Windy City Rollers.  I have had the pleasure of interviewing her twice.  (Check them out at On the Beat with Val Capone 2014 and On the Beat with Val Capone 2015).
She is one tough lady on the flat track.  She has also proven her toughness off the track.  Val battles Crohn's Disease.  This fight spawned the very creative "I hate Val Capone's guts" campaign.
I love Val, but I hate her guts.  If you hate her guts, too, or even if you just want to help her cause, please go to the Blood and Thunder website and order one of her "I hate Val Capone's guts" shirts to help with the medical bills from her fight with Crohn's Disease.
Val is a real sweetheart and she gives her all to her WCR fans.  If you have the ability, please help her cause.
I am not sure what Val is doing with Ron Kittle, Carlton Fisk and Harold Baines though.  I thought she was a Cubs fan.  Maybe they sought her out.  Maybe they are Val Capone fans.  I just hope they hate her guts, too.
