I grew up loving the game of baseball. I was fortunate enough to attend nearly every Angels home game for almost 10 years. In that time, I met pretty much everyone living who ever played the game. My favorite player at the time was relief pitcher Lance McCullers. I had Lance McCullers buttons made and I got to meet him many times. He was always so nice, even though at times he must have been thinking “you, again?!” After meeting everyone you could possibly meet and seeing hundreds of games, I fell out of love with the sport. I still love Lance McCullers and I wish him a happy birthday today, March 8, 2011.
