--Reggie Jackson on facing Nolan Ryan "Grantland Rice, the great sportswriter, once said `It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.' Well, Grantland Rice can go to hell as far as I'm concerned." --former Angels owner Gene Autry
Superstars like Nolan Ryan and colorful characters like Bo Belinsky dot the team's history, as do other names synonymous with greatness, like Vladimir Guerrero, Don Baylor, Jim Fregosi, Bartolo Colon, Rod Carew, and Troy Glaus. Milestone achievements, like Reggie Jackson's 500th home run and Mike Witt's perfect game, are part of that history as well. Angels Essential relives the pennant races, the triumphs, and the failures and introduces readers to the heroes, goats, villains, and flakes who have contributed to the history of this organization.
Whether you are a serious fan in search of previously undiscovered information or a casual fan looking to upgrade your status, Angels Essential gives you more of what you crave and serves it up on a most appetizing platter. There's trivia, special Top 10 lists, "what if" scenarios, and much more, all contained in the compelling story of a team and a franchise that in less than 50 years has established itself as one of the best in baseball.
