NUMBER TWELVE - Darryl Norenberg-US PRESSWIRE
More than twelve Angels have worn jersey number twelve
More than twelve Angels have worn jersey #12 over 52 seasons of Angels baseball.
Mark Langston's mega contract and many accomplishments (and chokes) were in jersey #12.
Don Baylor's first season here, but not his MVP year, was in #12.
Carney Lansford's two most productive seasons were in #12.
The batting average heavy Juan Beniquez campaigns were wearing #12.
Alberto Callapos arrived here in 2010 to wear jersey #12, the same number that the man he was traded away from the Angels for, Jason Bulger, wore when he got here.
The late Gus Polidor and the what might have been skipper Doug Rader wore "The Dozen".
