From Steve Bisheff: John Wooden is a longtime admirer of Angels' manager Mike Scioscia. After the 2002 World Series, I arranged a meeting between the two at Wooden's condo in Encino. I don't know which one was more excited. Scioscia gushed about what an honor it was to meet the greatest basketball coach in history. Wooden told him baseball, not basketball, was his favorite sport and that he loved the Angels' style of play, emphasizing team over individuals.
