Interview Conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer
So you want to write about the Angels, eh? While a lot of people would like to do that, not many of people actually get to do that—especially for a living.
Meet Alden Gonzalez, the newest professional Angels blogger. Taking over for Lyle Spencer, Alden joins the crew that covers the Angels to bring fans all the content that they crave about the team.
Growing up in Florida, Alden is still learning adjusting to life on the West Coast, but he’s settling in fast. Make no mistake about it, though: Alden is a knowledgeable baseball writer who speaks both English and Spanish—giving him a distinct advantage when interviewing Latin players. The other beat reporters are already coming to rely on him for that skill, especially in translating for interviews. Coming from a Cuban family, he’s always on the lookout for a good traditional meal, and I have already steered him to Felix’s on the Orange Circle. But if you have other suggestions, he’s open to hearing them.
AngelsWin.com recently caught up with Alden Gonzalez to find out more about our latest blogger. No, we didn’t ask him to weigh in on the Mathis/Napoli debate. But, we did ask him about his jacket—he loves it when people comment about it (especially his fellow fashion experts in the press corps). During Spring Training, he has yet to be spotted without it. AngelsWin.com is offering a prize to the first fan who can email us a picture they take with Alden at the ballpark while he’s not wearing the jacket seen in this video.
