Angels Official Website: DiSarcina recalls seeing Ripken's historic day


Recommended Posts

Funny, but I remember it very well.

How could I not ? It was during that dreaded 1995 season.


A friend of mine ( who was an M's fan ) went to the last game of the series at Anaheim in July.

We were going for a 3-game sweep against them. The M's started Andy Benes. They just traded for him.

We started Jimmy Abbot on his homecoming game after we re-acquired him.

Jimmy got lit up.

Jim Edmunds hit a grand slam to get us close .

But, by then Disar was taken off the game after sliding to second base.

YUP, Disar went down . So did our team for the next few weeks .

Disar came back for that series in Baltimore .

He still wasn't 100%.

Shawn Boskie served up a gofer ball to Ripken. Home run.

Also Emonds lobbed a ball to second base one time so he wouldn't nail Ripken.

It was a horrible road trip.
