Ever since this idea was proposed to me by Scott Stedman, I wanted this site to become the best Angels site for prospects and sabermetrics. We’ve come a long way since we’ve published our first article. We’ve brought along some new names like Robert Livingston, Eric Longenhagen, and Rusty Handler. Those guys are very smart, very sabermetric minded people (as for Eric, a very strong scouting mind as well), if you haven’t checked out their work yet, I highly recommend you do. Not to mention the tremendous hard workers in Sean Knorzer and Brent Maguire, they spend a hell of a lot of time working on their posts, read them as well! If you have an Instagram, check out our instagram page: maniacball_halohooligans (yes, that’s a mouthful) it’s filled with fantastic pictures, taken by Nakai Green.

If  you’re an Angels fan, you’ve probably heard of the fan group Halo Hooligans by now. We have had 4 very successful events so far this year at games, including being featured on Angels Weekly with Alex Curry at our 2nd event. With 250+ people coming to events so far, we feel like we have done a great job of running events so far.

So you’re asking why you should come to an event? You’ll meet fellow die hard Angels fans and watch an Angels game for an affordable price of 18 dollars. Included with your ticket for this event is your very own Halo Hooligans rally towel and lanyard. On top of just attending the game, the group will tailgate as usual starting at 4 pm in the Orangewood parking lot that is just off the 57 freeway. Drinks and pizza will be served and you will be able to mingle with your fellow Angels fans until game time. On top of all of this, we will be hosting a group of young kids with cancer.
