The Orange County Register put together a 15 person panel of media and Angels employees to select the 50 greatest Angels of all time. This is no easy task. The Angels will celebrate their 50th anniversary this season so there is a ton of players and personnel to mull over. By and large the team did a great job but naturally there was a glaring omission from the list. Noticeably missing from the top 50 Angels of all time was my favorite Angel as a kid Devon White ( the man is the reason I played CF).
Nolan Ryan was named the greatest Angel of all time.I would have went with Tim Salmon ( who was #2) but you can’t really argue against the impact Ryan made.
