Sorry guys. This got published well after the fact last night. But it's the official media release that the Angels sent to me.

David Saltzer will at the fiesta today and part of the media covering the enormous announcement. We'll have pics and videos later, plus he's going to get a question in to Trout like he did at the Hamilton event last year.
