Since the Angels and I celebrate our 50th anniversary this year togther — we both officially arrived in the summer of ’61 — anything the team may do to commemorate this number will bring special attention here.
The first big deal: All Rawlings baseballs used at Angel Stadium will have a special 50th anniversary logo.
Go ahead, Torii, keep fouling off those pitches.
The Angels estimate that during an 81-game home schedule, more than 4,400 baseballs are put into play. Home runs and foul balls are keepers to whomever scoops them up. But also know that batting practice balls that make it into the stands could have this stamp on them as well.
