Anderson to be inducted in Angels' Hall of Fame

ANAHEIM -- Angels great Garret Anderson will become the 14th individual inducted into the club's Hall of Fame before the team's game against the Yankees on Aug. 20, the club announced Friday.

Anderson was one of the most productive Angels in franchise history, as he still remains atop the team's all-time list in games (2,013), at-bats (7,989), runs (1,024), hits (2,368), total bases (3,743), extra-base hits (796), doubles (489) and RBIs (1,292). A fourth-round selection in the 1990 Draft, the outfielder spent 15 of his 17 big league seasons with the Angels.

"The inclusion of Garret into the Angels Hall of Fame will be a special moment for our organization and a fan base fortunate to watch his numerous contributions in an Angels' uniform," owner Arte Moreno said in a statement. "Garret was the model of consistency during his 15 seasons with the Angels and we are proud he will be joining this distinguished group of Angels."

The Granada Hills, Calif., native was a three-time All-Star who finished fourth in the American League MVP voting in 2002. His bases-clearing, three-run double in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series was one of the critical plays in the only World Series victory in franchise history.

Others in the Angels Hall of Fame include: Bobby Grich (1988), Jim Fregosi (1989), Don Baylor (1990), Rod Carew (1991), Nolan Ryan (1992), Jimmie Reese (1995), Brian Downing (2009), Chuck Finley (2009), Gene Autry (2011), the 2002 World Series team (2012), Bobby Knoop (2013), Dean Chance (2015), Mike Witt (2015) and Tim Salmon (2015).
