The 26 returning Halos will once again don their Angels jerseys featuring the 2002 World Series patch on the right sleeve. The players will later autograph the jerseys for an auction with the proceeds benefiting the Angels Baseball Foundation.
Starting Tuesday night, a member of the 2002 team will throw out the honorary first pitch prior to each night's ballgame. Tuesday will feature closer Troy Percival, followed by Garret Anderson on Wednesday and Scott Spiezio on Thursday. 2002 World Series MVP Troy Glaus will get the honors on Friday night, with General Manager Bill Stoneman tossing a pitch to manager Mike Scioscia following Saturday's Hall of Fame ceremonies.
On Thursday and Friday night, Spiezio and Glaus will hold an autograph signing outside the team store for fans that have purchased the Under the Halo Angels history book. The signing will begin at first pitch and continue for approximately one hour.
The promotions for "Anniversary Week" include:
Tuesday: 10th Anniversary World Series ring figurine
Wednesday: 10th Anniversary World Series poster
Thursday: Angels pitcher and cups set
Friday: Big Bang Friday Fireworks Show and Thunderstix giveaway for all fans.
Saturday: Kids ages 2-14 will receive a C.J. Wilson backpack.
