Some Baseball Notes

July 16, 2022

In these the last 2 days before a break in the 12 teams qualify for the ‘offs, (at least 6 to 8 too many) 2022 baseball “reg,” there is only one interleague series being played.

That involves the 29 games over .500 L.A. Dodgers visiting the 13 games under L.A. Angels.

They have never met in post-season. Four times each team made the ‘offs (’04,’08,’09 and ’14) and neither team made the World Series.

Ex Dodger and 2 time title winning player with them, Mike Scioscia guided the Angels to their lone World Series triumph in what is their lone World Series appearance, that in 2002.

Twenty years earlier on consecutive Sundays and in results for different reasons bad for me, first the Dodgers on the last day of the “reg,” yielding Joe Torre’s first ever first place finish/’offs appearance and then the Angels in the decisive 5th game of the ALCS at the then American League, Milwaukee Brewers were ousted from World Series possibility.

The truly great player, Joe Morgan, then with the S.F. Giants hit a decisive three run homer vs the Dodgers that yielded Torre and his Atlanta Braves the 1982 N.L. West crown.
