Let's take a walk down memory lane, eight and a half years ago when a young Darin Erstad was our leadoff hitter learning to never take a pitch from hitting coach Rod Carew.
Memorable Quotes Include:
"I don't get on base as much, but I hit for more power. If I stay here longer, I might drop lower in the order. It's just a different type of situation here."
"When Edmonds went down with an injury, it was a good opportunity for me."
Edmonds! Terry Collins! Cecil Fielder! They are all here!
Along with Darin's reaction to the Angels NOT getting Mike Piazza from the Marlins.
