I learned to love the sport with my Dad, watching the Angels play - usually poorly - in the old horseshoe stadium with the San Gabriel mountain range in the background. I'm pleased that the brief flirtation as a football stadium was short lived.

Thrilled to see them doing well after all this time. Go Angels!

Lakewood, tomorrow's city today. I always feel like I'm a day early... or something like that. You left out the Spurs posse... oh, we shouldn't mention those white trash asswipes.

It is funny how an area can be a baseball factory and how you don't see that until you have time and distance on your hometown. I grew up in a football factory town in Ohio. Played football, basketball and baseball with 3 guys who made it to the NFL. Even the head coach of the Boomer Sooners is from there. I think some regions get this way by having solid programs and coaches thatoaches that keep kids interested and playing plus do a great job of developing skills and natural talent.

Great post, just great.

Even though I'm an old West Side kid (BH, actually, but I don't want to brag), your post is a valuable reminder that "L.A." is a much bigger and more complex place than the "Hollywood" shorthand image that gets into the public mind (even in "L.A." and its surrounds). Thanks.
And even as a LONGTIME Dodger fan (my very first MLB ballgame was in the '59 Series at the Coliseum), I gotta love these '02 Angels - much more than SF, they are what baseball is (or should be) about.
