Luis Polonia used to note the lack of Latin American players with the Angels and wondered why the club seemed to be ignoring a valuable source of talent. "A lot of people used to say that, because normally other teams have Latin players," said Polonia, a native of Santiago City in the Dominican Republic. "I know they (the numbers of Latin players on the Angels) were not too good ever. I can't say why, because I didn't know the situation. Maybe they didn't have the right connections."
