Interview conducted on March 10th, 2012

TEMPE, AZ - In what was the first ever interview with Arte Moreno from a fan-run website/Blog, the owner of the Los Angeles Angels spoke for just under an hour to a crowd of 125 AngelsWin.com members on Saturday, March 10th.

The AngelsWin.com staff of writers and contributors put together several questions and presented them to Arte at the Fiesta Resorts Conference Center in what was AngelsWin.com's sixth annual Spring Fanfest. Arte answered questions for about 40 minutes from AngelsWin.com's MC of the night, Geoff Stoddart, AngelsWin.com's director of social media. Arte Moreno at the conclusion of our interview with him elected to ask if those in attendance would like to ask him any questions while the owner stood on stage in front of the podium and mic.

Of course the Angels fans got their money's worth and fired off a bunch of additional questions to the Angels owner, some really good ones in fact. There were some funny moments too, especially the exchange that Arte and Mike Sword (PercySquint) had that you have to see.

Before Arte Moreno fielded questions from the crowd, he showed just how classy and respectful he is toward those close to him both personally and in business, as he asked those who joined him at AngelsWin.com's event to introduce themselves, including the prospects, players in attendance who were sitting at a table in front of the podium. Arte called up to the stage his lovely wife Carole, President John Carpino and his lovely wife, Tim Mead VP of Communications and Jenny Price Sr. Director of Special Events. And as mentioned, the players who were in attendance who were invited to eat dinner with the AngelsWin.com group.

The night was incredible, the time Arte Moreno gave to AngelsWin.com and Angels fans in attendance was amazing. The best owner in professional sports took several pictures with fans and shook the hands of many before he departed some hour and thirty minutes after he arrived. Angels beat writer Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register who was in attendance -- along with OCR writers Ellen Bell and Jenelyn Russo -- told Chuck Richter that Arte gave AngelsWin.com more time on Saturday than he's ever given him.

I can speak for everyone at AngelsWin.com when I say, Thank You, Arte!
