AUTOGRAPH AND PHOTO GUIDELINES

All fans have access to the Player Photo Booths and Alumni Autograph Station lines at Fan Fest but are not guaranteed a player on alumnus photo or autograph. In order to accommodate as many photo and autograph requests as possible, please review the important information below.

  • There will be two Player Photo Booths and two Alumni Autograph Stations at Fan Fest located on the upper concourse at sections 207/209 and 221/223. Lines will queue at the bottom of the stairs leading to the upper concourse.
  • Players attending the Player Photo Booths will not be signing autographs.
  • A select number of players will rotate through the Player Photo Booths in 30-minute increments. Player Photo Booths will run from 12PM to 4PM. A select number of alumni will rotate through the Alumni Autograph stations in 45-minute increments from 1:30PM to 3:30PM. At least one player and alumnus will be at each Player Photo Booth and Autograph Station during those times. Thus, fans are not guaranteed the photos or autograph of a specific individual; regardless of it that individual was signing autographs when they entered the line.
  • Players and alumni attending the photo booth and autograph sessions will not be announced in advance.
  • All players and alumni will be instructed to take only one photo or sign only one item per person. We will ask that you have selected item ready to be autographed, as your cooperation will expedite the flow through each line.
  • Posed photographs with alumni will not be allowed at Autograph Stations.
  • Near the end of each 30-minute period, each line will temporarily be halted in order to place a new player or alumnus at each open station. The line will then resume movement as normal once that personality is ready.
  • Fans in need of special assistance to participate in the photo booth line or autograph line process should ask a guest service representative for assistance.
  • The Sharks reserve the right to deny any item deemed inappropriate for photo or signature.
