REVHF EDIT: ONE POST ZERO COMMENTS - and this one from a site that is nothing more than an Email-gathering spam attack - I removed the link to this scam site. Using Kingfish's legacy to create an Angels fan email list is an abomination.
For 14 years Tim Salmon gave his heart and soul to the Angels fans and the Angels organization. And there’s a whole heck of a lot of Angels fans that still have a soft spot for Salmon. Many of them have clamored for the organization to retire his No. 15 jersey, which nobody has worn since Salmon’s final season in ’06 (in fact, out of respect to Salmon, Dan Haren transitioned to No. 24 upon being acquired from the D-backs in 2010). It’s the hope of many fans that one day, Salmon’s number will be immortalized alongside that of Jim Fregosi, Gene Autry, Rod Carew, Nolan Ryan, Jimmie Reese and Jackie Robinson. That is the ultimate goal of this petition…to help the Arte Moreno and the Angels organization realize what the “King Fish” gave and meant to the organization, fans, and the community. And ultimately to do what is right, and honor the man, by retiring Tim Salmons #15 jersey and letting him take his place among the likes of Carew and Fregosi.
