Angel Program Doesn't Keep Up With Scoreboard

June 19, 1993

Allan Malamud, complimenting the Anaheim Stadium scoreboard for keeping fans current on the progress of other major league games (June 16, Notes on a Scorecard), tells only half the story.

The Angels "Souvenir Program"--in steep decline for the last several years--no longer publishes the uniform numbers of major league pitchers; thus, even though the scoreboard faithfully continues to flash those numbers, we (the fans) have no way of knowing to whom the numbers refer.

The program also has stopped listing the uniform numbers of the Anaheim Stadium umpires as well, so we're now likewise clueless about who they are. This year, the program also stopped publishing anything more than the uniform numbers of the visiting team's players; gone are the height/weight/hometown/major league experience, stats, etc.

Oh well, at least the program's price has gone up to $2.50.
