Interview Conducted by David Saltzer - September 28, 2010

As a member of the press, you get to meet a lot of interesting people around Angels Stadium. Once checked into the stadium, the first person you will see is Wally, the usher in front of the elevators. Taking the elevator up, you usually get to have a nice word or two with Carol or Gail, two of the ushers who run the elevators inside the stadium.

Once inside the press box, you check in with John Moynihan. Though his size is intimidating, he is a very helpful and friendly, especially towards rookie reporters.

Officially, John is listed as the Press Box Security for the Angels. But, during a game, he wears a variety of hats. Odds are, if you’ve been to enough Angels games, he’s checked in on you, though you might not know it. That’s because every time the ushers in the stadium go to check on a person they raise their caps to let John know that you are okay, or, if not, for him to coordinate emergency medical services for you.

Aside from providing valuable security for the team, John is an original Angel. Though he never played professional baseball, he’s been with the team since 1961, and his first days with the team were in Los Angeles. Over his years, he’s worked with three different owners, thousands of players, and millions of fans.

With the upcoming 50th Anniversary season approaching, took the opportunity to interview John to get his unique perspective on the game and to hear some of his interesting baseball stories.
