Training camp is almost finally (!!!) upon us and with it comes all of the festivities you can expect, including the signing of autographs for kids 17 & under.
Kyle, from Shakopee, we’re sorry. 28-year-old “kids” are not allowed in.
This year will present a new format for autographs in which the first 600 kids on each autograph day of camp will receive a (one) scratch off ticket upon admission into TCO performance center on each given day of camp.
The ticket will reveal a player’s name, which will be redeemed for admittance to that player/player group’s line. Some lines may have more than one player. Scratch off tickets will be randomized to get an equal chance.
Parents/guardians will not be allowed in line, but will be allowed to watch over from a designated area. Posed photos will not be allowed.
It all seems pretty straightforward and designed to be efficient, hopefully that rings true in practice.
