      Bo Belinsky- He will never be forgotten he was more famous in LA for his off the field life.

      Rumor was at the beginning of spring training He use to show up at Autry's ranch in Palm Springs with 2 Playboy Models and and half a bottle of bourbon.

        Belinsky

        I think he used to date Mamie Van Doren and Tina Louise(Ginger on Gilligan's Island) Did his arm go bad or was he just too undisciplined? I have an audio cassette game of him pitching for the 1967 Astros and he pitched pretty well. The Angels got Rudy May(and Costen Shockley) for him so that worked out.

            I thought Justin Baughman would be better too. I think I saw his name on someone's AAA roster.

                  How about Jay Johnstone.
                  Also any Yankee fan will thank the Halos for Mickey Rivers and Ed Figueroa. How many people remember that they wereen't too bad for the Angels either.

                  Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

                    Alex Johnson.

                    Even though he won a batting title, he might as well be forgotten. BlueSteve has posted numerous stories of his stint with the Angels, and you'll see why hardly anyone talks about him.

                      There were stories about him carrying a gun and not running out groundballs. One of the first bad attitude guys that I remember. His stats in 1971 really dropped off after the batting title(.329) They traded him to Cleveland for Vada Pinson.

                        Rivers and Figueroa

                        That trade worked out better for the Yanks. The Angels got one great year and one below average year from Bobby Bonds before they moved him on. Rivers and Figueroa were rising stars in their short time with the Angels.

                          I agree that the trade was great for the Yanks. It was part of Gabe Paul's genius in making trades. I am just saying that Rivers and Figueroa were not bad with the Angels, either. I believe Figgy won an ERA title in Anaheim.

                          Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

                              I think you would enjoy the book Once They Were Angels, written by the Angels bat boy in 1974-76. He maintained contact with many of the players over the years and told Angel history through 10 of the better known Angels. Belinsky was deceased, but interviews told his story. He was actually engaged to Mamie Van Doren. Belinsky wasn't a star, but his carousing brought needed media attention to the Angels.
