Jason was one of the most feared hitters at the beginning of the century. He combined power and average to become a sought after player. When he got to New York the steroid talk started, but he quickly admitted his guilt and said that he was sorry. He actually seemed to come out of the controversy okay.
I took this picture earlier in the year at Wrigley. Giambi did not play in the game, but did pinch hit late in the game. I had already caught a batting practice home run ball from him, and I had hoped to catch a real home run ball from him. I had a portion of the right field bleachers all to myself. I did not get my wish though, and all I got was this picture.
