So today, Daniel Robertson met Daniel Robertson
The Rays Daniel Robertson got to meet the Indians Daniel Robertson today, which was a cool thing for both since they have a bit of a shared past.
Both grew up in the same area of southern California, and the Rays Robertson, who is younger, has received the other's mail (including licensing checks), been asked to sign his baseball cards and photos.
"It's been really funny,'' the Indians Robertson said. "And it's going to be really cool to meet him.
"How many times do you think there's been two guys with the same name playing against each other. It's cool. That's how baseball is. You see something new everyday and you get to experience something different.
"I was thinking of signing with them in the off-season, and I thought how funny would it have been if you had two Daniel Robertsons in one lineup.''
