The Angels Prospects are Heavenly

Recommended Posts

In the thread on the Orioles I mentioned Harry Dalton (former GM of the Angels who was the GM of the Orioles prior). 

Dalton was pretty good at building farm systems, and made one pretty good trade (Fregosi for Nolan Ryan and Leroy Stanton).  

With all the talk about our farm system, I found a Sports Illustrated article from 1976 that talked about the great prospects in the Angels system at that time.  Combined with the eventual signings of Joe Rudi, Don Baylor, and Bobby Grich it seemed like the Angels were in the midst of a long term renaissance (signing vets to bolster the team while waiting for all the talent in the farm system to mature).   I was in my teens when this article came out, but I remember being really excited about the future.    I remember many of the names very vividly as being players of immense promise, especially Willie Mays Aikens (and his distinctive black bat).
