While she only got 1 or 2 autographs the entire weekend, I've always been able to get 6-8 autographs on average at Soxfest.
I also remember the old days at the Hyatt when I would get autographs from most all of the players (and the ex-players) attending over the weekend. This was before the Sox starting doing the wristbands. I would also meet the players and get autographs in the Big Bar and family party on Satuday night.
