Weekend Autograph Opportunities: Jaime Jarrin, Dodgers Day at the Long Beach Expo and Paul LoDuca

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events throughout the Southland. As always, be sure to check the Blue Heaven Calendar for other events (a link can always be found on the tab at the top of this page, just left of center), and always confirm with the establishment. Everything is subject to change.  Please email me with any tips about upcoming events in Southern California.  As the rest of the week progresses I'll update this post with other events (if there are any) as I become aware of them.  Also, I don't always list every event below, so be sure to check my Calendar.  I always try to favor free signing events over paying events.  Click on any pic to embiggen.

Boras hinted that Guerrero could be signed in the next couple of weeks. Asked if Guerrero would play winter ball in Latin America, Boras replied, “That will be up to the team that signs him. The Dominican League doesn’t start until mid-October. We expect he will be signed before then.”
"I cooked him a Southern dinner and he brought a signed softball and a replica of his Hall of Fame plaque," said Rhonda Johnson. "He encouraged Summer to stay in softball and told her that when she plays her first game back, he wants to be there. She was definitely inspired. I could see it in her eyes."
