The Lake Monsters (especially our longtime Press Box staff) are thrilled for Keith on his induction into the A’s Hall of Fame. A most deserved honor for his 52 years with A’s organization, including 9 (2011-19) while affiliated with VT. Congrats Keith and come visit us soon. https://t.co/ICRy7xgHyC— Vermont Lake Monsters (@VTLakeMonsters) August 8, 2022

Pete Rose, ladies and gentlemen.
Rose was made available after the ceremony. Someone, maybe an agent, said he had something to say to me, but he didn't seem to know he was expected to say anything. He asked if he'd offended me, and said "will you forgive me if I sign 1000 baseballs for you" before saying "sorry" https://t.co/w5ikH1jKDR— Alex Coffey (@byalexcoffey) August 7, 2022
Is this made up?
