Found August 04, 2012 on Angelswin:
  By Christian Ilten - AngelsWin.com Journalist Founded in 2005, Trinity Bat Company was founded, is owned, and operated by the McKee Family, in Fullerton California. Growing up in Santa Ana, Jeff McKee went to many California, Anaheim, and now Los Angeles Angels games. When starting up Trinity Bat Company, their goal was to get their product into Major League Baseball. Just six months into the business, Trinity Bat Co. got a needed letter from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim affirming with them that the Angels would buy their product. This letter, and its envelope, is now proudly hung upon the wall in the lobby/merchandise area of the location in Fullerton. Now having Major Leaguers such as Adrian Gonzalez (BOS), Vladimir Guerrero, Josh Hamilton (TEX), Dee Gordon (LAD), Chase Headley (SD), and of course, the home town kid, Los Angeles Angels slugger Mark Trumbo, the once small company is now being recognized nationwide. Not only has the bat company been featured in three d...

Albert Pujols gets angry after fan prevents him from catching foul ball (Video)

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was pretty angry Saturday night after a Chicago White Sox fan in the second row of the stands prevented him from catching a foul ball. It happened in the first inning on a foul popup by White Sox batter A.J. Pierzynski. Pujols reached into the front row of the stands to catch the ball and would have caught it, had it not been...

Angels encourage Wilson to go for quicker outs

C.J. Wilson arrived with the Los Angeles Angels this season with a reputation as a free thinker with varied interests off the field -- and a tendency to overthink it on the field, leading to high pitch counts and high-stress innings at times. The Angels have seen some of that in his seven starts since the end of June, and they've taken steps to refine Wilson's approach...

Scioscia protests 1st inning call in Angels' loss

Mike Scioscia contends that a first-inning call by the umpires changed the course of the Los Angeles Angels' extra-inning loss to the Chicago White Sox. Alex Rios hit his second homer of the game, connecting for a two-run shot in the 10th inning that lifted the White Sox over the Angels 8-6 on Friday night. Rios also hit a solo homer as the White Sox won their third in a row...

Angels can still salvage their road trip

There was an unsatisfying four-game split in Texas and a series loss in Chicago, but the Angels can still salvage something useful before they return home later this week. If they can win two of three games in Oakland beginning Monday night, there will be a measure of triumph at the end of an exhausting road trip. Right now, there's nothing worthy of praise. Everything good...

MLB American League Keeps Getting Better via Anaheim Angels

Making the playoffs just got that much harder. That is, if your team plays in the American League. The MLB non-waiver trade deadline continued the wave of talent heading out to the land where the pitchers do not pick up a bat and Adam Dunn can still hit bombs. Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols flocked to the superior league in the winter but the happenings over the past few days have...

Angels have yet to start extension talks with Greinke

Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto paid a fairly steep price to acquire Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers last week. The Angels sent their top position prospect, infielder Jean Segura, and two more top-10 prospects (right-handers Johnny Hellweg and Ariel Pena) to the Brewers for the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner. That price will only look steeper if the Angels...

The Angels really need a reliever, so why not Marmol?

Everybody knows the Angels need bullpen help if they want to get to the postseason, and the last two games against the Rangers have been the “Exhibit A” of why they need bullpen help. On Wednesday, the Angels blew a six runs lead (five earned runs allowed by the bullpen) and lost 11-10 in ten innings, and yesterday, the bullpen worked hard again, allowing six more earned runs...
