The Nice List, Angels style. Who made the cut?
#6 – Jered Weaver –
Jered Weaver has been one of my all-time favorite Angels so it was fitting that he was the first Angel I ever got to interview for Halo Hangout. I went to Inland Empire to watch two of Weaver’s injury rehab starts. It was exciting to watch him and see him look good knowing that he would be back to the Angels soon.
After he pitched both evenings for the 66ers I was able to interview him both times and was nervous as heck as Weaver towered over me. He could probably tell I was nervous, but he couldn’t have been more gracious. He was very easy-going and friendly. Weaver even posed for a picture with me which I later found out was taboo for reporters from Tim Mead (former Angel Vice Preseidnet of Communications) who was at both starts by Weaver.
Little did I know a week later I would be able to go to Angel Stadium to watch Weaver make his first start in two months and interview him in the Angel locker room post-game there he was more business-like but he was still cool. I will never forget my time with Jered Weaver and he will always be one of my favorite Angels ever.
