Happy Hannukah

I just found this out:

Jimmie Reese was Jewish...

His real name was James Herman Soloman (really, click the link)

So along with Rod Carew, the Angels have retired the numbers of TWO Jewish baseball players.

This is probably a major league record.


As far as the other retired Angel Numbers go...
Gene Autry was a Freemason, I assume Nolan Ryan was raised a Protestant and Jim Fregosi raised a Roman Catholic, but you all may know otherwise...
