The LA Angels do much more than play baseball. They take part in multiple charity events, visit children’s hospitals, and visit schools. As many people know behind any good man is a very good woman.
This adage is very true for the LA Angels. The players wives and girlfriends host a very special charitable event every July called the Golden Ball Mystery Bag Event. This year the event will take place this Friday, July 26th from 5 to 7 pm before the Angels game against the Baltimore Orioles underneath the Hats by the Home Plate Gate.
The proceeds from this year’s event will be split between the Angels Baseball Foundation and the recently started Tyler Skaggs Foundation in memory of Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs who passed away on July 1st. The event is always a very cool one as you get a chance to meet the women who support some of your favorite players’ wives. You could win a ball autographed by Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Andrelton Simmons, and many more.
The way the event works is that fans can buy a bag that contains a ball autographed by one of the Angel players or coaches, the cost of which is $40 (limit two bags per person). If your ball in the bag you purchase is wrapped in Golden paper you will receive tickets for four people to an Angel game in 2020 and on-field batting practice experience. The balls can only be purchased with cash from the Angel wives/girlfriends who will have a table set-up under the right hat closest to Gate 3. Advice from past years, GET THERE EARLY!!! The Mystery Bags SELL OUT FAST!!! There is a line that starts forming as early as an hour or more before the event starts.
Here is a look at the mystery bags courtesy of the Los Angeles Angels twitter site.
So please come out early Friday night and support this great charity event that supports two great foundations and you can also have a chance to meet some truly special women who are the Angel players wives/girlfriends. You will not regret it, and maybe you will be the lucky one who gets the Golden Ball and can join the Angels on the field during batting practice.
This is an event that many fans look forward to and the autograph balls make great gifts for Angel baseball fans.
