Promise of things to come for LA Angels

A little bounce in the team step on Wednesday with the return of Simmons, pending arrival of Lincecum, etc. I anticipate a strong stretch for Mike Scioscia’s club in the coming weeks to get back in to the AL West picture.

12-year-old youth baseball teammates make the most of spring break

Charlie Downey and Kendall Hailey have played together at Toluca League Youth Baseball since they were five. As their first trip to baseball’s spring training bears out, the 12-year-olds take their hardball seriously.

Making the most of their spring break, the two Los Angeles kids, with some willing navigation from Charlie’s father Jake, visited seven Cactus League games in four days. They even made time to go a Phoenix Suns NBA game, play paintball and have lunch at BankOne Ballpark, home to Arizona’s Major League Diamondbacks.
