How do you sum up an evening with Mr. Angel? As the first of our guest speakers, Tim Salmon got the party rolling at the 2013 AngelsWin.com Spring Training Fanfest as our first of many guests in the evening.
The AngelsWin.com Board of Directors started off the talk with a few questions that they had prepared for the Kingfish. Emceed by Chuck Richter, the founder of AngelsWin.com, he asked how Tim's relationship with Mike Scioscia has evolved from being a player on the team to an analyst in the broadcast booth. In one of the most interesting and challenging questions, Chuck asked him which outfield was the best one in which he played; Anderson/Edmonds/Salmon or Anderson/Erstad/Salmon. The comparison between the two made Tim think quite a bit, and led to an interesting comparison of the style of play between Edmonds and Erstad.

After finishing up with the Board of Directors questions, Tim then opened up the questions to the audience. And, as he put it, he “didn’t drive all the way out [there] for nothing.” He answered questions about what holes he has seen in Mike Trout’s swing to which was his favorite stadium to visit as a player.
Tim was very gracious with the fans, answering questions for over a half hour, posing for photographs with fans, and signing autographs. Fans could not have gotten a better experience with the 2002 World Series Hero! He spoke for so long that we had to divide the interview in half in order to fit it all on the internet!
