Tales from the Angels Dugout: A Collection of the Greatest Angels Stories Ever Told by Steve Bisheff

Tales from the Angels Dugout is a humorous and fascinating look at the lighter side of forty-one years of frustration followed by the excitement of 2002. Award-winning sportswriter Steve Bisheff reminds us of those colorful days with The Cowboy, Gene Autry and the struggles under the ownership of the Walt Disney Company, as well as the curses, hexes and tragedies that haunted the Angels for so long. Bisheff contrasts zany personalities such as Bo Belinsky, Dean Chance, Albie Pearson, and Reggie Jackson with the remarkable, but non-superstar bunch managed by Mike Scioscia that finally won the World Series, including Troy Glaus, David Eckstein, Tim Salmon, and Troy Percival. In this newly-revised edition of Tales from the Angels Dugout, Bisheff updates what has happened in the years since that great championship season, including the arrival of such notables as owner Arte Moreno, Vladimir Guerrero, Albert Pujols and of course, phenom Mike Trout.
