The Angels approached AngelsWin.com founder Chuck Richter in the fall of 2010 with interest in using their Top 50 Greatest Moments in Angels Baseball for a historic book at which that time had no name. Chuck Richter agreed and worked with the Angels project manager for the book Doug Ward and AngelsWin.com’s own Geoff Bilau who was the senior editor on our Greatest Moments feature, making sure all of our write ups were worthy of being used in a published book.
A year and a half later, the book is published, available to be purchased and AngelsWin.com writers get to see their names listed in this historic book for a lifetime and many generations ahead.
A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Tim Mead, Doug Ward and the entire Angels organization for recognizing our work and including it in the Angels’ first ever published history book by the Los Angeles Angels and its contributors.
Below are some details of the book ‘Under the Halo‘ from Amazon.com. You you can purchase the book for the current price of $21.00 here.
