Fans of the Gatemen had their autograph books and baseballs ready for their favorite team members after Sunday night's games.

Each season, the Gatemen have a few autograph nights, giving children a chance to meet players after the games.

Director of Merchandise Jim Mckiernan said another autograph night will likely occur near the end of the season so a different group can bring photos or baseball bats to be signed.

"It's great because the kids get to meet them one by one," Mckiernan said. The kids present were awed to see players up close and get their pictures taken with them.
