Opinions Needed!

First, I want to thank everyone who has commented on my last post! It's funny how social everyone becomes when there is something being given away for free...bums! Hahaha I'm kidding about being a bum, but I am completely serious in thanking you for jumping in on my contest!

On the the point we go. A while back (4 or 5 years, maybe?), I was fortunate enough to receive this:

Sean Henn, former Yankees relief pitcher, was a client of my mother's insurance office. She knew that I was abaseball fan, and, during the course of conversation with Henn one day, brought up my love of the game. He autographed this bat with the inscription, "JUDSON - Best Wishes! Sean Henn" From that moment, Henn has been one of my favorite pitchers.

Fast-forward to today. Henn is/was in the Mets organization. But, after being sent back down to their Vegas affiliate in October, he elected free agency. Everything I find shows that he is still with the Mets, but I can't find anything showing that he re-signed with them. Do any Mets fan know?

Also, I spoke with William of foul bunt last night about all of this. I am planning on sending Henn a couple of my favorite cards of his to get them signed with the intention of having them framed with the bat. Furthermore, I wanted to send an authentic Yankees jersey for him to sign to frame with all of this, but I can't find one (all I find a batting practice jerseys). Therefore, my plan was to send the cards to Henn and ask to buy one of his jerseys, if he had one available. Do you think that is out of line? I don't want to be "that guy," but I also don't think that asking that would be that terrible. Thoughts?


  1. Hey Judson, I don't think Henn is with the Mets organization anymore. I didn't hear of his re-signing after he was outrighted to Triple A, he's not listed on the tentative Triple A roster, and he's not in camp as a non-roster invitee.

    As for the jersey, since the Yanks don't use last names anyway, have you considered purchasing an authentic jersey and just using one of his 4 Yankees numbers on it?

  2. I think that if you wrote a letter explaining to him that you're a huge fan of his, it wouldn't be out of line. He'd probably like to hear that there's someone who collects his stuff. Worst case scenario... he'll say no. Best of luck.
