June 29, 1983 the California Angels beat the Texas Rangers 2-1 at Anaheim Stadium. Tommy John pitched 8 innings, allowing 1 run on 5 hits while striking out 5 and Luis Sanchez picked up his 8th win in relief. Tim Foli and Bob Boone both were 3-4 in the game each knocking in Ellis Valentine once. Bob Boone was sold to the Angels at the end of the 1981 season and would remain their starting catcher for 7 years. In his first year with the Angels he threw out 21 of the first 34 runners attempting to steal a base and would end up throwing out 47% of the runners trying to steal on him during his Angel playing days. While Boone was known for his defense behind the plate more than hitting he ranks first all-time in an Angel career for sacrifice hits with 90. Boone caught Mike Witt's perfect game in 1984 and would make his fourth and final All-Star game appearance in 1983 as an Angel. Bob Boone along with his father, Ray and sons Brett and Aaron would all be major league All-Stars in their playing careers.

Love to hear what you think!
