Angels wives to host "Gold Ball Mystery Grab Bag"
ANAHEIM, CA - On Saturday June 2nd, the Angels and Special Olympics, Southern California
will host the second annual "Gold Ball Mystery Grab Bag" event at Angel Stadium. The Angels' wives and
Special Olympics athletes will sell the mystery grab bags at the Home Plate Gate hats from 5 P.M. through
the second inning.
Each bag contains a baseball autographed by an Angels player or coach, along with a raffle
ticket offering fans a chance to win other autographed items. Twelve lucky fans who find their
autographed baseball wrapped in gold paper will win four tickets to an upcoming game and a chance to
meet the Angel who signed their ball during batting practice.
The event is being led by Kristin Weaver, wife of Angels' ace Jered Weaver. Kristin worked in
Special Education post-college and Weaver became a Special Olympics Ambassador prior to the 2010
season. They annually attend the Special Olympics Summer Games in Long Beach together.
There is a three bag limit per person and proceeds from the event will benefit Special
Olympics, Southern California and the Angels Baseball Foundation.
