Just got my copy of Under The Halo-


I was reading some of the quotes last night, marveling at the pictures (even Shay Torrent!) and there is something I wanted to get in print that wasn't in the book. We were at the game on April 27, 1983- that's the night Fred Lynn and Darryl Sconiers both hit grand slams, 13-3 over the Tigers. Great sight, but that isn't the point. We were sitting pretty far down the right field View level, and you could see into the Angels dugout. I always bring binoculars to the game, and that night I saw something especially goofy. After Sconiers hit his GS, the crowd went utterly nuts, applause, hollering, madness. Darryl kind of sheepishly comes out of the dugout and waves his cap very quickly at the crown and disappears back on the bench. I scan down to the dugout. Reggie Jackson is sitting at the near end of the bench ( I believe he was on the DL then). He gets up, saunters down to the other end of the bench and starts giving Sconiers hat-tipping lessons! I guess 44 thought the kid needed pointers on flair and showmanship. I'm passing the binoculars to my buds so they can see. That just might have been the single funniest moment I've ever seen at a Halos game.
