Angels program from 1975


Recommended Posts

Someone asked me to dig up one of my old Daytona 500 programs from the 1970s. In the same box I found this - a game program from Anaheim, June of 1975, my first trip to the stadium. The Texas Rangers were in town, a scheduled doubleheader. Frank Tanana set what was then an AL record for strikeouts by a lefthander with 17 in the first game.

I loved watching Tanana!

Ryan, Tanana,, and two days of cryin’

1977 was exhibit A.   They pitched shutouts against the expansion M’s to open that season.   Then they lost the next two to the M’s before Tanana won game 5.  The two must have had almost half of the 74 wins that season.   The home opener against the same M’s, I came the closest to seeing a no-hitter in person.   Ryan gave up a double in the 3rd, and nothing else.

Oops @Angel Oracle, you’ve got the names backwards.

I remember going to a game with my father when Ryan pitched against the Rangers and he gave up a first inning  single to Alex Johnson and that was it.

I never saw Ryan pitch in the majors, but he was in the Mets farm system when Jacksonville was the Mets' AAA farm club. A lot of pitching talent came through there: Ryan, Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, Gary Gentry, Tug McGraw...

The way that I remember Nolan Ryan.

Before anyone knew who he was, word got out that the Mets had a kid who was throwing 100MPH, and he was being called up to AAA. The park was nearly full for that first start. Ryan was very fast, but he had no control whatsoever. I was afraid that he might kill a hitter if he hit him.
