Ozzie Timmons played five years in the major leagues for the Cubs, Reds, Mariners and Tampa Bay. He is now the hitting coach for Tampa Bay's AA affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits. He kindly shared the following story.
"The best story I've got is, one day I did an appearance at an elementary school for some kids and a young girl asked me, why do you guys sign your autograph to a point that we can't even read it? From that point on I have always signed to where you can read every letter in my name. I love to tell everyone that story."
