VInce Scully began his broadcasting career in 1951 with the Brooklyn Dodgers working with Red Barber.

I like the Angels too, Brady, but they've never had an announcer that came even close to Vinnie.

Joe Torre was prolly the best of all. Yes...this is the same Joe Torre who's the current manager of the Dodgers.

There was one long time Angel broadcaster named Starr who was the absolute worst broadcaster of all time.

It didn't really matter when he was with the Angels, cuz the team stunk so bad, prolly no one listened to the broadcasts anyway, prolly why he lasted so damn long.

Vinnie also worked for NBC at one time broadcasting NFL games on TV.

The only old time Angels broadcaster besides Torre that I can remember is Bud Blattner.

The Angels weren't even a blip on the screen in those days.

If y'all lived in Orange County since 1961, I doubt you went to too many games for the first coupla years.

The Angels played at Wrigley Field in 1961.

Huh?

Oh...yes they did.

This Wrigley Field was a bandbox of a stadium located on 90th Street and Avalon Blvd. It was the original home of the Los Angeles Angels, the Triple AAA Pacific Coast League team.

The Angels moved to Dodger Stadium in 1962, only they refered to it as Chavez Ravine.

Walter O'Malley when he opened Dodger Stadium in 1962 was so cheap, and so in love with the mighty buck, that he only had SEVEN total water fountains in a stadium that could seat 55,000 peeps.

When the Angels moved in, Walter O'Malley made 'ol Gene pay for half of the expenses, including charging him for a 1/2 a roll of toilet paper, for every roll used!

The Dodgers also played in the Coliseum. The Dodgers also owned the rights to use the name "Angels" and the team only used it by permission.

To be fair, Scully has called games since 1950, but Jaime Jarrin has called the games in Spanish since 1959, and is as loved by his audience as Scully is by his.

I really haven't forgiven the Dodgers for the way they handled Ross Porter. As far as I can tell, they don't seem to care whether I forgive them or not.

Yeah, they did 'ol Ross pretty dirty.


Wrigley was on 42nd place and Avalon. Not that it matters, because it's long gone.

Gail's Dad used to live around the corner from the joint.

My bad, I was prolly thinking of the Classic Car wrecking yard, where the owner had a huge billboard on the roof that said: IMPEACH EARL WARREN.

Or mebbe Ascot Stadium, both were located on/near Avalon in that general area.

I think he did. A lot of the fans didn't like it when he changed the name to The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but you can't argue with the teams success since he took over.
