Weekend Autograph Opportunity: Tommy Lasorda in Arizona and Derek Fisher in Santa Ana

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events throughout the Southland (and Arizona for Spring Training). 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.
