Nobody can question San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore's toughness or commitment to his fans.

The day after the 49ers lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, Gore still showed up to do an autograph signing at Lefty's Sports in Burlingame, Calif., despite having a broken right hand.

As it turns out, Gore did more than just sign autographs:

Tonight with his broken hand, Frank Gore shook hands, signed autographs and met over 250 of his loyal fans.

That's pretty crazy.

Lefty's Sports shared some information about the running back's injury: 

We are told that Frank Gore will have surgery tomorrow on his hand and hopes to be back in his Niner uniform later this year! #ClassAct

The injury will keep Gore from playing in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, but it didn't keep him from showing up for the fans.
