Albert Pujols joined the 500 home run club Tuesday, hitting two in the Angels' 7-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. He joined another club, as well. A group of three players who reached career milestones as Angels. Those three players have two things in common: None helped the Angels win a World Series, and all chose to go into the Hall of Fame wearing another team's uniform. Reggie Jackson belted his 500th home run against the Kansas City Royals in Anaheim Stadium on Sept.

Rod Carew was in disbelief the first time he met Roberto Clemente. He said he was "living the dream" when he met and played against his childhood hero in baseball's 1967 All-Star game in Anaheim, five years before Clemente died in a plane crash while trying to aid earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Their names were together again Tuesday as they were enshrined as the 47th and 48th players in the Hispanic Heritage Hall of Fame at baseball's All-Star FanFest, also in Anaheim.

It was just another promotional news conference, this one for an All-Star game in Angel Stadium months from now, maybe three or four media types showing up. But this is why this job is so cool at times, a morning to remember after catching up with Rod Carew . Never really knew the guy until the last few years. I tried interviewing him as a player and Gary Matthews Jr. would prove to be more approachable. "I grew up," says Carew in explaining the transition from being so standoffish to so obliging.

After six years out of the game, Rod Carew returned to baseball as a coach with the Angels this season with a bit of trepidation. "The only thing that I'm worried about is flying because I'm afraid to fly, and I hate to fly, and I did it for so many years," Carew said before the season. Early Thursday morning, Carew was injured in the first serious accident involving a major league baseball team; he sustained whiplash.

The line of prospective bone marrow donors whose hearts were touched by the life-threatening struggle facing two young Ventura County boys wrapped alongside the State Office Building on Wednesday. There were police officers and sheriff's deputies in uniform. Civilians in business suits waited patiently. Others, many of them on a day off from work, stood comfortably in T-shirts or sweatshirts and casual pants.

A tip of the baseball cap to former Angels' star hitter Rod Carew, who has gone to bat for a shelter for abused women and children in affluent Anaheim Hills, where he lives. The shelter, Eli Home, eventually won city approval, but not before being granted a shabby welcome from some other residents who were opposed to it. Carew learned of the shelter from newly elected Anaheim City Councilman Bob Zemel, who was aware that Carew had been beaten as a boy and had run away from home.

Derek Jeter led the major leagues in hits in 1999, ahead of B.J. Surhoff, Luis Gonzalez, Doug Glanville, Bernie Williams and Randy Velarde. All of those other guys vanished from the majors between 2002 and 2008. Jeter, the iconic New York Yankees shortstop, is going strong at 38. He could lead the majors in hits for the second time, with a younger cast chasing him - in order, Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, Adrian Beltre, Alex Gordon and Billy Butler. Jeter ranks 12th on the all-time hit list and sixth on the all-time singles list.

The silver bat accompanies Alex Johnson outside his Detroit residence on occasion. Once he toted it to his chiropractor, removing it from wrapping that had concealed its identity. "I said, 'Do you know what this is?'" the former Angels left fielder recalled in a telephone interview recently. "He looked at it and was astounded. " Johnson, 69, has a history of surprising people — for better or worse. In 1970, he hit .3289 to edge Carl Yastrzemski by .0003 and win the Angels' first and only American League batting championship.

On the ground is the soft, reddish dirt of an infield. And long, green strips of artificial turf. And all around, there are baseballs and bats and faces of famous ballplayers. But there is no sunshine or blue sky. No clicking cameras or reporters or crowds or applause. The only sound is the low, patient voice of a man in red sweats talking to a 12-year-old boy. "You have to concentrate," the man says. "Look at your pivot foot." This is not a ballpark.

In the still of the morning, the distinguished gentleman walks into the ballpark, in search of solitude and comfort. For so many years Rod Carew performed here, brilliance at bat. When he comes to Edison Field these days, he comes alone. He walks into a courtyard to a circle of flowers. Within it is a bronze bust of a young woman. Here, Michelle Carew perpetually smiles. Here, a ballpark that can hold 45,000 screaming fans becomes a sanctuary for one man.
