The one part of my childhood I remember thoroughly enjoying every day was waking up to get ready for school and my mom telling me how Erstad performed in last night’s LA Angels game. He was not just my favorite player, but her’s as well. I guess you could say I was (am) a bit of a momma’s boy.
It was more than just Erstad’s play that won me and my mom over though. My mom and I have the same birthday, June 4th, which also happens to be Erstad’s birthday. Do you know how cool it was for four-year old Vincent to share a birthday with an Angels player?
