May 27, 1987 at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore the California Angels lost to the Baltimore Orioles 8-6. Mike Witt gave up 5 runs and walked 6 in 4 2/3 innings and Gary Lucas would take the loss in relief. Brian Downing hit a home run in the game and Jack Howell would add two home runs, giving him 10 on the season. Howell would sign with the Angels as an amateur free agent in 1983 and make his debut with the club in 1985, appearing in 43 games. His best year would be in 1987, when he hit 23 home runs in 138 games. Howell added 16 home runs in 1988 and 20 in 1989. Howell would be traded to the San Diego Padres in July of 1991 for Shawn Abner and later sign back on with the Angels in 1996 and again in 1997, where he hit 14 home runs in 77 games that year. Howell was primarily a third baseman for the Angels but would fill in in the outfield, first base, second base and even one game at shortstop during his career with the Angels.

Love to hear what you think!
