Hello Boosters . .
have a lot going on as we move into the 2014 Season! It is
our 50th Anniversary of supporting Angels Baseball and we
are very proud of that accomplishment. We have received great
support from the Angels management, players, coaches, and
broadcasters. We really appreciate their help over these many
years through the various owners of Gene Autry, Jackie Autry, Walt
Disney Company, and Arte Moreno. We hope to grow even more this
year as we make more people aware of our organization.
At our March meeting, we
were privileged to have Bobby Grich speak to us, take
questions, and sign some autographs. He grew up in Long Beach,
played for the Angels from 1977-86 after being with the
Orioles, he was a 6 time All Star, won 4 Gold Gloves, and was
the first player elected to the Angels' Hall of Fame in 1996.
Bobby told us some great stories about moving up through the
minors and shared some hitting tips that he learned from some of
his favorite players including Don Baylor, the Angels current
batting coach. His favorite manager was Jim Fregosi. It was very
interesting and entertaining
We also had Geri Hernandez
of the Red Cross along with our own Kim Edwards tell us
about the upcoming Annual Angels Booster Club and Dodgers Booster
Club Blood Drive. Check out the Special Events article for more
information, and please volunteer or donate for this worthy cause
- each blood donation can save 3 lives! Next meeting we will again
have author and baseball historian Chris Epting as our
speaker. Be sure to join us for this entertaining and interesting
We had some new members join us
for this meeting, John Pettus and Rochelle Martin.
We encourage our new members to get involved by coming to events
and meetings and volunteering to help. We get to have fun while
helping out various charities. There are some group ball
games, fundraisers and watch parties scheduled, so check out the
Special Events and Trips & Tickets articles in this and future
newsletters - you don't want to miss out on the fun!
