The story has made the round so many times that Angels fans can recite it by heart. While he is building a home on his property in Oklahoma, Reggie Willits also constructed a metal building that he planned on using as a batting cage. Since the metal building was up and running last year, the Willits family (Reggie, his wife and his young son Jaxon) decided to make living quarters in the batting cage and that’s where they have resided.
Willits said Friday, that widespread flooding in the area where he lives had reached his property. He said that about three inches of water entered the batting cage/temporary residence, in the middle of the night recently while his wife was sleeping. There was only slight water damage to the new house, which is about a month from being ready.
It looks as if Willits’ house will be ready once the season ends, but he is thinking more along the lines that he will believe it when he sees it.
