PHOTOS FROM ZACK COZART AND HOMER BAILEY SIGNING SESSION IN 2012
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey will visit the Sports Gallery in West Chester Township from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday.
In 2012, Bailey went on to set career records in earned run average (3.68), games started (33), innings pitched (208) and strikeouts (168).
Bailey also appeared to get stronger at the end of the season, tossing a no-hitter in late September against the Pittsburgh Pirates and then breaking a Reds postseason record with 10 strikeouts in his start against the San Francisco Giants in Game 3 of the National League Division Series.
“We are very happy to have Homer. He is the last Reds pitcher to throw a no-hitter, so we are expecting a good crowd to get that signature,” Sports Gallery co-owner Mark Fugate said.
The cost to have an item signed by Bailey is $25 (one autograph per ticket). Bailey will also be signing autographs with a “No Hit” inscription for an additional $10.
Fellow starting pitcher Mat Latos and catcher Ryan Hanigan will host a signing session from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 23. Tickets (one autograph per ticket) are $30 for Latos and $25 for Hanigan. Brandon Phillips has also agreed to participate in a signing event at the West Chester shop from noon to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8.
Prior to signing events or on the day of the event, the Sports Gallery will also have baseballs, bats, photos, cards, helmets and other Reds collectibles available for purchase.
Furthermore, items can also be dropped off or mailed in to be signed.
