I feel sure some MLB players (and other sports professionals) are better than others when dealing with the public--I don't keep up with it like I used to, but Ernie Banks and Rick Monday come to mind as fan-friendly when I was young. But the worst I've heard of in recent years came to me first-hand, from a co-worker who attended a Braves game. It concerned pitcher Steve Avery. While with the Braves, a 5-year-old asked for his autograph, to which he replied "Not in your lifetime." I remember thinking "what a jerk--I hope he loses 20."
