Totally Weird Fact

Prior to the 2002 season, former Angel pitcher Ramon Ortiz was found to have lied about his birthdate. He was actually three years and two months older than he had revealed, His actual date of birth was May 23, 1973 (making him one day older than Bartolo Colon). It turns out that the date he had given as his real one, March 23, 1976 is, coincidentally, Joel Peralta's true birth date.

Congratulations to Joel Peralta on his 1st major league victory in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Twins.
