The rule in baseball is that you must change your pitcher if you cross the chalk line a 2nd time. Near the end of a disappointing 1988 campaign, Angels Manager Cookie Rojas forgot this - the umpire forced him to make a pitching change after his 2nd visit to the mound with the same pitcher in the same inning. He was fired the next day.

Adam Kennedy took the Low Number for the 2000 season - eventually surpassing the Angel record of games played wearing #2 held by Jerry Remy - coincidentally established during the year of Adam's birth!
