He was one of 16 players to advance to the major leagues from the 1984 Olympic team, one of the best amateur teams ever, and Shane Mack was supposed to be as good as any of them, including Will Clark, Mark McGwire and Barry Larkin. He was the first-round draft choice of the San Diego Padres that summer, the 11th player chosen nationally, but that seemed to be as good as it would get.

One night this week, Shane Mack was confronted by a kid dangling upside down over the Padres' dugout roof. He was begging for anyone's autograph. Mack, the newest Padre, obliged.
