Jake Elmore was a 34th round draft pick for the Diamondbacks in 2008. Prior to that he went to Arizona State. Go Devils!
Jake made his MLB debut on Saturday, August 11, 2012. It was also Gerardo Parra bobblehead night. I was at that game. Shortly afterward I purchased a few of his rookie cards with hope that I could get them signed during Spring Training. The D-Backs had other plans as they put him on waivers last November. The Astros swooped in and picked him up.
Jake quickly responded to my fan mail request and this awesome autographed card is now part of our Diamondbacks Collection.
