Angel replacement player John Fishel went from the land of the free to the home of the incarcerated in the span of about an hour Tuesday afternoon. Soon after the playing of the national anthem in Tempe Diablo Stadium, Maricopa County sheriff's deputies arrested the former Cal State Fullerton star on a warrant that he owes about $50,000 in child support to a Phoenix-area woman who claims Fishel is the father of her 6-year-old daughter.
