My mom works at a small Japanese restaurant inside the Mitsuwa marketplace in San Diego. Occasionally, Akinori Otsuka, a former Padres pitcher (now with the Rangers), comes by to eat. Knowing Sage would love an autograph, she got one for him. He even wrote, To Seiji (misspelled I know, but that's how his name would be spelled if we lived in Japan.) And then Sage got Otsuka's rookie card off ebay with his own money. And we framed it tonight. He was stoked.
