2009 Eastern League All-Stars Brian Jeroloman
Who is this? New Hampshire Fisher Cats catcher Brian Jeroloman
What is this? An autographed card from from last year's Eastern League All-Star set
Where'd I get it? Jeroloman signed it for me after a game between the Fisher Cats and Thunder in Trenton last month
How much did it cost? I got the set on closeout for $3 earlier this season
Why is this so special? Jeroloman was a sixth round selection of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2006. He's progressed through the Blue Jays system and is at AA New Hampshire for the second year in a row. Last year, he was an Eastern League All-Star. This season, he's hitting .290 / .450 / .466 with 6 home runs and 27 RBI in 59 games.
His brother, Chuck, is the shortstop for the York Revolution in the Atlantic League.
Jeroloman's signature looks a bit rushed... it's little more than his initials. Here's his card from the 2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cats team set:
