If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know I’ve been researching the early history of the Angels minor leaguers, which began in 1961 the same as the parent club.
We held a reunion in late September of surviving Statesville Owls players. I videotaped the event and hope to have it online in a few days.
I’m editing the video now and was reminded of what someone said at the table. I checked Google and, sure enough, it’s true.
Some of you may remember Ken Hunt, an Angels outfielder in 1961-1963.
It turns out he was the stepfather of child actor Butch Patrick, who played Eddie Munster on The Munsters.
One of the alumni recalls Hunt saying, “My son makes more money than I do!”
