Los Angeles Angels Program - June 18, 1963

Here's another program I picked up at The Ballpark yesterday.  This one was originally owned by someone who was very thorough.  There's lots of writing on it, but it's pretty cool  They even wrote a narrative of the game-ending play on the cover: a walk-off wild pitcher by A's reliever John Wyatt with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th inning, that allowed Angel runner Bob Perry to score.

The cover shows the Angels playing at Chavez Ravine, which is Dodger Stadium.  The Angels shared the stadium with the Dodgers from 1962 - 1965.

For the Angels, Jim Fregosi was 3-4 with a walk and a triple.  Ken McBride was the winning pitcher and pitched all 11 innings!  You don't see that these days.

The Kansas City A's managed only three hits, coming from Wayne Causey, Jerry Lumpe, and catcher Haywood Sullivan.  Moe Drabowsky was the losing pitcher and didn't help himself out much by striking out four times.

Attendance was only 7,290 for this 8:00 pm game.  You can see the box score here.

The great thing about this program is that it also came with the original ticket stub!  It must have been stored for years in the program because you can see the browning outline on the paper where the stub was.

This was another $4.99 purchase which seems like a bargain to me.
