I was online looking to get some tickets to the Freeway Series next weekend when the Dodgers play the Angels in Anaheim and came across an interesting item. In celebration of their 50th Anniversary, the Angels have had a former Angel throw out the first pitch at all their home games. On Friday July 1st, Fernando Valenzuela will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and the catcher for the pitch will be current Angels Manager and former Dodger great, Mike Scioscia. Fernando only pitched 6.2 innings for the Angels in 1991. No doubt the Angels are taking advantage of Fernando's popularity in Southern California and it doesn't hurt that the Angels & Dodgers kick off a three game series that night.
True to the Blue!
