The Halos are having another frustrating season . . . which is nothing new. In the late '60's, my father took my brother and me to every Angels home game, and I don't recall winning being a big part of that experience. My grandfather was a season ticket holder - the seats were great - on the aisle next to the Angels dugout - on the home plate side - and Angels tickets were not in high demand. Dad would buy us a hot dog and soda, and give us each a dollar to spend how we pleased. Back in those days, a dollar was enough for both a bag of peanuts and an ice cream sandwich. My favorite players were Jim Fregosi and Jim Spencer. I remember being mad as a wet cat when the Angels traded Fregosi . . . . for some guy named Nolan Ryan.
