The Angels Diamond is for Preston Gomez.

Angels to honor Preston Gomez with sleeve patch

For nearly three decades, the Angels could count on a familiar face roaming the spring training complex. Preston Gomez spent 28 years in the Angels organization, first as a major league coach and later as an assistant to the general manager.
Gomez died last month at age 86. He never fully recovering from being struck by an automobile returning home from last spring training.
This season, the Angels will wear a black sleeve patch in his honor.
The patch, in the shape of a diamond, will be black with red trim; PRESTON will be etched in white across the middle.
A fitting tribute for a man who had spent the last 65 years of his life involved in the game.
Sounds like Annaheim truly does have a couple of Angels in the Outfield.

If the game was in the 15th inning I could accept this insanity. Bud has to go.

"A batted ball that hits the batter while in the batter’s box is a dead ball. A batter is not out of the box until both feet have touched the ground out of the box. If the batter is clearly out of the box and the batted ball hits the batter, then the batter is out."
