Angels Official Website: Fregosi honored before Angels-Phillies game


Recommended Posts

thanks for posting this

 

I was little disappointed that there was ZERO mention of this ceremony in today's LA Times.

 

Number 11 means a lot to the Angels organization, S, Cal MLB baseball history and to MLB itself........

 

if there's a 'greatest generation' for MLB similar to the 'greatest generation' in terms of WW II vets, Fregosi was one of the last of this MLB greatest generation.

 

A true baseball man through and through who did EVERYTHING in the game, play the game, play it well, was an ALL STAR, was a franchise player for the Halos, was a coach, was a manager for several times, was scout for several teams who was WIDELY RESPECTED throughout baseball......and he did each of these roles very well.

 

Fregosi deserves to be honored (certainly by the Halos for whom he was the face of the franchise during the Halos formative years and probably did more than any other player -- well the guy he was traded for -- Nolan Ryan -- did a lot, too -- to put the Halos on the MLB map). and by MLB in general.

 

I hope the OC Register did an article similar to the MLB.com article posted here.  For the LA Times do have nothing is a very sad commentary on the state of sports reporting and newspapers today.
