Happy birthday to short-term Angel, and Hall of Famer, Eddie Murray.
After killing the Angels for years as a member of the Baltimore Orioles, Murray discovered a new way to torture Angel fans by spending part of his final MLB season with the Halos.

One of the great, low-key power hitters who was nails every season he played. You could write down 30 HRs and 100 rbis every year for Eddie. Played the game well, mentored younger players like Cal Ripken. Wouldn’t talk to the press. Memorable line from a Baltimore Sun sports columnist: ‘Tried to talk to Murray, but couldn’t; everyone said he lets his bats do the talking. Asked his bats, they were’nt talking either.’
Happy Birthday, Eddie!
