âI just thought of, ‘Hey, we’re pretty close. You can still do a poster, but we’re actually pretty close to where you could see a poster from where we’ll be sitting, âsaid Aaron Hogan. “I asked him what he thought about it and if he would be interested in doing it and he said, ‘Yeah, let’s do a poster.'”
The Astros won 15-1, but there was no jersey exchange that night at Arlington. Bregman threw a ball at Graham after an inning, however, and Graham said making the poster was worth it.
When Aaron pulled up to a gas station south of Fort Worth on his way home, he tweeted thanking Bregman for throwing a ball at Graham. He had posted an article on the jersey swap earlier today and updated this post that there was no swap after all, but it was a good birthday trip for Graham. .
Things turned sour on the way home.
âI just put my phone in my truck and got on I-35 to go home and after about four or five minutes my phone rings, then it rings again, then rings, rings, rings, and I say something’s going on, so I pick it up and Graham falls asleep already at this point, but I realize, ‘Woah, Alex Bregman just answered us,’ âsaid Aaron Hogan. “Not only did he answer us, but he said, ‘Hey, I have a jersey for you. Let’s talk from time to time. ‘â
With the Astros on the road trip, Aaron responded to Bregman on a day off days later. Bregman then texted Aaron and put him in touch with someone from the Astros to set up a game the Hogans would attend in Houston and proceed with the jersey swap.
