Good morning, McCoven!

There was a thing going around on Twitter last night asking people to name the nicest celebrity they’ve ever met. This one specifically said not to share anything but the names, but I wanted to translate that into a fun conversation topic for this morning’s BP.

So, who has been the nicest baseball player (doesn’t have to specifically be a Giants player) that you’ve ever met, and how did it happen?

I’ve only really ever met one baseball player in person. It was after Tim Lincecum’s final start as a Giant, and I was taking my time, waiting for BART to empty out a little bit before I tried to make my way home. I stumbled upon the player parking lot and hung around for a while just to see what I could see. I saw several players exit, but I’m not really the type to yell for an autograph or anything like that.

Then I noticed Justin Maxwell riding around on the hover scooters that Lincecum had bought for all of his teammates. He was kind of hanging out with his family, but then he walked down to the opening of the lot and started posing for pictures with fans and signing autographs. I’m not even sure how many of the fans knew who he was vs. how many just saw someone posing for pictures and wanted to get in on it.

But he was super nice, took pictures with everyone and hung out for quite a while, until one of his kids started crying and his family made their exit.

Anyway, I’m sure a lot of you all have better stories and I’d love to hear them below!
