Watch: Phillies’ Rhys Hoskins Has Teammate Asking for His Autograph After Latest Home Run
Rhys Hoskins, who apparently spent the majority of the season while in the minors watching video of Aaron Judge and scoffing, is a Colossus striding the earth right now. On Wednesday night, the Phillies’ rookie first baseman bashed his 18th homer of the year—all of which have come in a mere 34 games since he was called up in August. And his shot off the Marlins’ Vance Worley—part of a seven-run inning for Philadelphia—was an opposite-field shot so impressive that his own teammates were giving him the celebrity treatment.

Charlie Hunnam Tells off Autograph Dealers
From Autograph Hound to Screenwriter, Ray Bradbury Had a Lifelong Love Affair With Hollywood
Until the end of his days, Ray Bradbury kept a stack of weathered autograph books, each roughly the size of a standard-issue banking checkbook. When he moved with his family at the age of 13 to Los Angeles in April 1934, Bradbury immediately began frequenting the old film studios: Paramount, RKO, Columbia and MGM. On his very first sojourn, riding atop steel-wheeled roller skates, he encountered the peerless W.C. Fields, who begrudgingly signed an autograph for the star-crazed teenager and, upon handing back the signature, said, “There you are, you little son of a bitch!”
Digging through drawers, history
I unearthed an autograph book — about 3×6 inches — with a faded brown leather cover. I don’t know how long its been here and I couldn’t connect it to anything else in the drawer where I found it or to any news story. My only clue to who might own it was a small note stuck to the outside:
“Milley’s Autograph Book. JAO’s wife. Need it back.”
