My first live baseball game was at Angels stadium, where Don Baylor hit a three-run, walkoff homer off Goose Gossage, defeating the mighty Yankees. Needless to say, I was stoked.

I'll admit to losing track of baseball through college and graduate school. I began to pay attention again toward the end of the 2002 season. Yes, a bandwagon fan at this point. The playoffs and World Series thrilled me. I just KNEW they'd come back in game six. What a team!

Since then, I've been following them very closely, watching many games (now that I have MLB.TV I watch most games) and checking box scores and trade rumors obsessively. I even saw Mike Trout play in the Midwest League, against my current home's single A club. He was the best guy on the field, as everyone now knows. I had a good time pointing him out to the local baseball fans, who could also see that he was something special.

That's about it for me.

Go Angels!
