Leonard Garcia was a 17-year-old clubhouse boy the last time the All-Star game came to Anaheim Stadium. He was stationed inside the American League locker room when New York Yankees slugger Mickey Mantle burst through the doors shortly before the first pitch was thrown. Mantle put on his uniform, took his place in the lineup, promptly struck out, showered, dressed again and then made his way toward those same doors.

After nine sets of clubs were taken on the Angels' recent trip, Executive Vice President Port issued a memo to Leonard Garcia, the team's equipment manager, giving golf clubs the hook. Players are now prohibited from taking clubs on the road.

If someone should ask you what Leonard Garcia and Lynn Pettis have in common, you can tell them that both have their pictures on Topps baseball cards wearing the uniform of the Angels although neither ever played for the team. In 1969, Garcia was a batboy for the Angels. Aurelio Rodriguez was the third baseman. When Topps came to shoot pictures, Rodriguez thought it would be good fun to have Garcia pose for him. Garcia did, and nobody was the wiser until the conspirators confessed.
