I was a virgin when AW started. I still am but that's besides the point.

Technically you and Chuck in the hot tub at Spring training...

But that's for another thread.

Yeah, I was part of the OMB group.  Not sure how long after launch we came over.  I feel like you came to the OMB pretty soon after launch to promote it.

 

 

I was on the Old MLB site as well, same screen name. Went back about a year before it shut down and some jackass had my account banned.

I think I came over here a little later from the OMB when it became clear that the MLB caretakers were asleep at the wheel.

Reserve?

No wonder I got feisty.

I was probably mad at you when I wrote this. 

Truth be told, @ScottT and I were doing ST games well before AW launched. He's a good guy. We've done tons of ST games and after game shenanigans in the past.

I need to look deep into our old scouting reports and circle back. 

Sorta funny, that's where I first came across your stuff -- you were doing a fantasy baseball site of some kind and had linked to it on the Scout boards.   Time flies.   

You and everyone else here since the beginning deserve a lot of props for creating and cultivating the forum.  Kudos to all of you.

I took a while to get here, Tank had been on me for a long time to come over.   

So, thanks Tank!

I wasn’t here at the very beginning but pretty shortly after.  I got an email invite from Chuck.  I am assuming he saw me post either on ESPN, the OMB or he saw me in a baseball chat room on AOL.  Even after I was a member here it took me years to post regularly.  I think what really lead me to searching out fan content was the night Vladdy signed with the Angels.  I wanted to read all about rumors and such.  Thanks Chuck!

Chuck and the AW staff....Thank you for the last 15 years.  It has been a pleasure to be apart of this wild ride.  The content on this site if fantastic, the people here are outstanding.  Great knowledge, great interviews and insight.

 

Thank you to all that makes this happen.

Thank you, Craig! You can "Craig" this thread in the future, I won't mind. :)

By Geoff Stoddart, Director of Social Media

Before there was Facebook.  Before there was Twitter.  Before there was SnapChat or Instagram, there was AngelsWin.com.

In February of 2004, Charles Richter launched the website as a way for Angels fans around the country and around the world to stay connected to the team they loved and discuss topics that impacted them.

What started out as a simple message board & blog grew into a news and reporting outlet, also being rewarded with a Major League Baseball media credential by the Angels.  Correspondence from AngelsWin have participated in such team events and press conferences as the introduction for Albert Pujols, the contract extension for Mike Trout and the welcome Shohei Ohtani, to name just a few.  Over the years, the site has been recognized by Forbes, Fox Sports, ESPN, MLB Network, Japan Times, Washington Post, MLB Trade Rumors, local media outlets in the Orange County Register and LA Times and Angels Broadcast crews over the air for their reporting and insights.

The site has also hosted many fan events, including Spring and Summer Fanfests where they’ve had such guests as Arte Moreno, Tim Salmon, Don Baylor, Kole Calhoun, ex-GM Jerry Dipoto, Victor Rojas, Jose Mota, Terry Smith, Rex Hudler, Steve Physioc and Tim Mead.

As AngelsWin looks to the future, they will continue to provide the news, the stats, information and fan events.  But at its core, AngelsWin will always continue to be an online community forum that launched the site and as a result has forged many lifelong friendships & memories.

AngelsWin.com: The internet home for Angels fans – where fans can cheer, argue, laugh, complain and discuss the team they love.

So a toast to 15 great years and another toast to 15 more.  Go Angels!
