Boy that's a tough one! I thought maybe I could make out Corey Koskie... but he was in the AL. If you get the first name, you can try a search on and see who comes up. I've envisioned that being maybe Casey or Joey or Jay or Larry. But man, so hard to tell... Ben's right, there's not one absolutely clear letter, and that makes it tough. So idea what team? – JeopardyTempest Feb 19 '14 at 22:12
Any chance the signature is upside-down in the photo? If you look at it upside-down, it almost looks like it ends in "Jr." – Ben Miller Feb 20 '14 at 16:54
What ballpark did you get it in? – Jacob G Feb 20 '14 at 18:02
I immediately thought Corey Koskie as well; it's close to some versions of his autograph that I found online, but he played for the Twins & Jays (AL) from 1998-2005, and one year with the Brewers (NL) in 06. I even tried tweeting him.. his reply was "no idea". – mikejeep Mar 5 '14 at 4:31
Matt, by what team or where were you living near as a kid? – Chrismas007 Nov 25 '14 at 19:58

Just because it's a National League Baseball doesn't mean the player has to be, someone could have brought their own ball to be signed. The dot above the end of signature would seem to mean "i" at end of the name which would fit Koskie. I did a google image search of Corie Koskie autograph, but inconclusive.

Too many differences. But I see where you were going with the letters from the O.P.'s ball. Also, somebody tweeted Koskie in the comments of the question: "even tried tweeting him.. his reply was "no idea"" – Chrismas007 Dec 29 '14 at 17:36
