So after reading the article about BoSox bandwagoners, I feel a distinct shame in that despite growing up in OC and cheering at early/mid-90s Angels games, I know very little about Angels history. Yeah, I'm only 20 (that wasn't THAT long ago right, old guys?), but if a random ESPN journalist were to ask me to name the only Angel to win the batting title (which I have since learned was Alex Johnson in 1970 with a .329 avg), I would have been unable to do so. And so, my question is this:
Outside of straight up memorization of every man on that top 100 list, what's the best way of bettering my knowledge of Angel lore? Are there are books on this? Documentaries? Crotchety old men I can talk to that can reflect on the good old days?
All help is appreciated.
