Colorado Rockies v Arizona Diamondbacks

Getting a player’s autograph in a any sport is still a pretty big deal for many sports fans, but in some cases, it’s really not worth it in the end.

Most major league ball players have a unique looking autograph, but to the average fan, you would never in a million years be able to make out who the player really is. In the case of Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer, this will never be a problem again.

Cuddyer is known around the league to have “perfect penmanship” when it comes to signing baseballs or any other item that comes his way. It wasn’t always that way as he explained to the Denver Post though.

“My first few years in pro ball, my autograph looked like an EKG. Like most guys”

That changed after Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew called him out during a signing session. Killebrew couldn’t read the name on the ball, and Cuddyer heard about it. From that point on, Cuddyer always puts 100% into the signature, and it shows.
