It was a cousin of Willie Mays. He and Orlando Zapeta and Hoza Pagan and may a few of the other Giants used to go out there after baseball games and have these huge roast pig parties. The kids in the neighborhood would find out about it and come flooding in from all over the place to get their autographs. They didn't want to disappoint their fans so they would often spend like an hour signing autographs. The only problem was that by the time the hour was over with, there would be an even bigger line of kids than the line that started out.
