RBI (40) 2011 Team Ball and 2011 Season Summary

Well folks as I mentioned in the Big League Moment 3, Grant Balfour gave me my first 50th Anniversary baseball for the season. In honor of the ball and anniversary year for Angel baseball, I decided to turn the ball into my 2011 team ball. With no further ado...here's my autographed 2011 Angels team ball.


                              1 Joel Pineiro   7 Ervin Santana  11 Rich Thompson 16 Mike Trout
                         2 Jerome Williams 8 Mark Trumbo 12 Kevin Jepsen   17 Torii Hunter
                         3 Howie Kendrick 9 Hank Conger  13 Jordan Walden 18 Peter Bourjos
                 4 Fernando Rodney 10 Tyler Chatwood 14 Andrew Romine 19 Bobby Wilson
                        5 Scott Downs                                15 Bobby Abreu   20 Jered Weaver
                        6 Vernon Wells

Yes that's a Mike Trout rookie autograph on the ball at the top, but I'd rather showcase Weaver on the bottom. I'm pretty excited for this ball there's a good amount of history and story lines on the ball from this season.
  • Joel Pineiro reached his 100th win.
  • Howie Kendrick was named a 2011 All-Star.
  • Ervin Santana threw a no-hitter and broke 1000 strikeouts.
  • Mark Trumbo is a possible ROY.
  • Jordan Walden set a club rookie record with 32 Saves, and a 2011 All-Star.
  • Bobby Abreu moved into a tie for 24th all-time for doubles.
  • Mike Trout made his MLB debut and set up a run for 2012 ROY.
  • Torii Hunter reached the 1000 RBI plateau.
  • Peter Bourjos is a gold glove contender and tied for 1st in the AL for triples.
  • Bobby Wilson caught a no-hitter.
  • Jered Weaver put himself in the Cy Young debate and was a 2011 All-Star.
Now for the 2011 season summary of my stats:
  • 74 games attended at Angel Stadium.
  • 10 baseballs snagged, 3 of which were 50th Anniversary balls.
  • 149 autographs received in person. 
All in all it was a very good season.
