Arte Moreno vs Gene Autry


Recommended Posts

Might get some heat for this one, but In lieu of the Trout deal and Arte doing everything under the sun (sometimes too much) to make the Angels a winning franchise, which was/has been the better owner? Gene Autry was not without his faults (Nolan Ryan comes to mind).

Obviously the Angels wouldn't exist had it not been for the singing cowboy, but Arte doesn't get the recognition I feel he is entitled. We could have a much worse owner. This Trout deal makes this a question worth asking, just for kicks.

Without Autry the Angels don't exist. Ponder that.

When I think of it in that respect, I have no idea if I would even be a baseball fan.  I mean I love the game, but growing up where I did, the fact that my dad drove a taxi around Anaheim and would get us free tickets.  I’d love to think I would have still latched on to the game, but that is no guarantee.

Doubt it

if we all love the game we’d all be rooting for another team. Most likely the dodgers and complaining about them lol

Autry spent money like water and I loved him for it!
