The Angels approached founder Chuck Richter in the fall of 2010 with interest in using their Top 50 Greatest Moments in Angels Baseball for a historic book at which that time had no name. Chuck Richter agreed and worked with the Angels project manager for the book Doug Ward and's own Geoff Bilau who was the senior editor on the Top 50 Greatest Moments feature, making sure all of our write ups were worthy of being used in a published book.

A year and a half later, the book is published, available to be purchased and writers get to see their names listed in this historic book for a lifetime and many generations ahead. 

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Tim Mead, Doug Ward and the entire Angels organization for recognizing our work and including it in the Angels' first ever published history book by the Los Angeles Angels and its contributors.

Below are some details of the book 'Under the Halo' from You you can purchase the book for the current price of $31.95 here.

Generations of Angel fans can relive their favorite team moments in Under the Halo: The Official History of Angels Baseball. From the team’s inaugural season in 1961 under the ownership of film legend Gene Autry, Under the Halo traces the memorable moments, personalities, and accomplishments of this remarkable franchise.

Through first-person accounts by Angels past and present, Under the Halo brings the reader into the dugout with an all-star roster, including: Garret Anderson, Bert Blyleven, Rod Carew, Dean Chance, Doug DeCinces, Brian Downing, David Eckstein, Chuck Finley, Troy Glaus, Vladimir Guerrero, Wally Joyner, Albie Pearson, Troy Percival, Nolan Ryan, Frank Tanana, and many, many more!

With more than 300 images, a vintage scorecard and program guide reproductions and a removable timeline of the Angels recent success, Under the Halo is a grand slam for Angel fans and baseball historians alike!
