AngelsWin Today: AngelsWin.com Interview with IE 66ers Manager and former Angels Third Baseman Jack Howell


Recommended Posts

Interview Conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer

Long-time Angels fans will recognize the IE66ers manager and former Halo, Jack Howell. As an Angels fan, it is great to see him back with the organization where he made it to the majors and played primarily 3B (but also many other positions, such as OF, 1B, and 2B). He even had 2 plate appearances in the 1986 postseason for the Angels, go 0 for 1 with a walk.

Jack is also the player who made one of the most memorable moments that I have ever seen in a game. Jack hit a broken bat home run in Yankee Stadium in 1987. For newer Angels fans, you can watch a video of that special moment here. More importantly, fans can head out to see the IE66ers play and get a bobblehead immortalizing that moment on September 11th, 2021

Throughout our interview, Jack and I discuss the Angels philosophy on developing players, what playing “Angels Baseball” means, how the IE66ers are playing, how the 20-second pitch clock is affecting the game, and many more topics that you will want to hear. After spending time with Jack, I can tell that he really cares about developing the next generation of Angels Major Leaguers and is very capable of helping them along their way.

Fans really should head on out to see the IE66ers play. It is a great and local experience. All the food venues at the stadium are open, the tickets are incredibly reasonable, and you will see some good baseball being played by the next generation of Angels players. There are lots of great promotions in a family friendly stadium. Please click here to check out upcoming games, promotions, and the schedule.

I know you're traveling to Maine today, but great job on this interview @Dave Saltzer. It's good to see that you're getting out and about again and feeling a little better now that your blood counts are back up and you got the energy back. You sounded like a kid in a candy store yesterday when you called from the stadium. That was great to hear. 

Saltzer got a bunch of prospect interviews as well yesterday. More to come!

Thank you my friend. It's been a tough slog, as you know, but having the energy to get back out there is great. 

 

If you are wondering about the pull of AngelsWin.com, we were the first in person interviews that they have allowed the whole year. That's a high sign of respect for us. 

 

And, for this somewhat hesitant to head back out there to go see the kids play, I'd say, if I'm getting back out there (I've taken my family to some 66ers games) then everyone else can and should go. 

 

As for Howell, I really loved how he came across in the interview - - very down to earth and very much interested in mentoring and developing these players as they move through baseball.

Broken bat bobblehead!  What a great idea.

I still remember seeing that live on TV, it was a Saturday game of the week on NBC.

Jack was one of the best defensive third basemen in the game in the late 80s.

What newer fans don't understand, is back then there were maybe 50 Angels games in a season on TV. So, the chances of really seeing and recording itfornposterity were so remote. And, having Sculky yelling "check the bat!" made it awesome. 

 

I have long wondered about that and was so glad to get the rest of the story. 

 

It was great interviewing Howell. 

 

The funny thing was, while doing the interviews I interviewed three guys named Jack in a row. The interviews with players will come over the next week or so.

You still bitter @ten ocho recon scout? I'll get you setup with a meet and greet on his bobblehead night to make things right if that works? I'm dead serious.
