Hello Boosters . .
. WOW! As I write this
article, last night (or should I say, early this morning) Albert
Pujols hit a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 19th inning to
bring a 5-4 victory to the Angels over the Red Sox. I was watching
the game and was just about to go to bed at 12:40 a.m. when it
happened. It was Pujols' 514th career homerun. Boston challenged
the call, but it stood up on the replay. It was 3:40 a.m. in
Boston. The game lasted 6-1/2 hours and the media said it was the
longest game time-wise ever played at Angel Stadium and the
longest game this season in the MLB.
The Angels used nine pitchers and had run out of relievers so
starter Matt Shoemaker came in and pitched the 17th, 18th and 19th
innings, retiring all 9 batters to get the win. Way to go team!
Unfortunately, the Angels lost Sunday's game, but we're hoping
they are ready to come back in August and September.
Our wonderful Booster volunteers are everywhere. Check out
Darlene's Community Service article in the current newsletter to

Steve Portwood are just a few of those members we want to thank

Author, columnist, and adventurer, David Jerome, was our
guest speaker at the August 4th meeting. He is also known as "Mr.
Bucketlist" and it seemed like he was just getting started on his
entertaining stories. He had baseball and non-baseball adventures
and we hope he can come back again soon. He said that his
bucketlist was always evolving and he encouraged us to make our
