Uniform #1 ... The jersey number worn that signaled for the final pitch of the team's first world championship.

1970: Aurelio Rodriguez and Ray Oyler
1971: Bruce Christensen and Sandy Alomar
1973: Manager Bobby Winkles
1974: Manager Bobby Winkles and Orlando Ramirez
1975, 76: Orlando Ramirez
1977, 78: Manager Dave Garcia
1993 - 96: Damion Easley
1997 - 99: Manager Terry Collins
2000: Keith Johnson
2001 - 2005: Bengie Molina

What could be weirder than the 15 year gap between Dave Garcia's firing and Damion Easley picking the UNO for his shirt?

How about Manager Bobby Winkles being stripped of his managerial reign (and hence his #1) during the same week that Bengie Molina was born.

Bengie would become the man who would play the most games and Angel wearing #1. He is followed closely by Charter Angel Joe Koppe.

(Note that this series only covers regular season Angels players and managers).
