If you were a baseball fan in the ‘60s, ‘70s, or ‘80s—or if your passion for the game and its history is more recent—Waiting for a Sign will be a page-turner you can’t put down. Kevin Keating spent his youth collecting autographs from some of the biggest stars baseball has ever produced. Along the way he befriended many of the most familiar names in the history of sports. Through those friendships, Keating collected not just autographs, but behind-the-scenes stories that are must-reads for any baseball fan. In this collection of narratives, Keating builds on the success of his first volume as he introduces you to Roberto Clemente, Chuck Connors, Casey Stengel, Warren Spahn, George Brett, Bob Feller, Buck O’Neil, George Sisler, Paul Gleason, Mark McGwire, and many others.  Here are the stories behind the autographs that reveal the person inside the player!
