Ball Player Siting

Today I went down to Lancaster and spent most of the day with my aunt and grandmother.  We decided to go out for lunch to a local marketplace that has a ton of great food.  Going through the front door, my aunt said “hello” to a woman and her husband, but I didn’t pay attention to who it was until we were inside and they were out near their car.  After sitting down I found out that she was talking to Tom Herr and his wife.  My aunt use to work for a clothing store in Ephrata where Herr’s wife would shop a lot.  Herr played for the Phillies from 89-90, was an All-Star in 85, and won the World Series back in 1982 with the Cardinals.  Currently he his a bench coach for the Lancaster Barnstormers in the independent Atlantic League.  Last year I met Herr while attending the Philadelphia Sports Card & Memorabilia Show in Reading and obtained his autograph.   

Have you ever seen a pro athlete at a non-sports related event?

  1. Very cool story. I do not believe I’ve ever run into a sports player at a non-sports event.

    By the way…I’m from Ephrata and currently reside in Akron. It’s a small world!
