Chris began his journey towards Angels fandom back in 1986. He distinctly remembers his first game at the Big A in which he was more excited about the souvenir vendor than the game. Fortunately, things changed and his affinity for the game of baseball and the Angels grew. His favorite players growing up were Brian Downing, Jack Howell, Wally Joyner and Tim Salmon. One of his best memories as a child was on a warm Sunday afternoon in which he jumped on the Angels team bus all in an attempt to secure Brian Downing’s autograph. Those were the days! Chris enjoys collecting Angels memorabilia and most importantly rescuing it from the oily pavement at local swapmeets. Last year he found a game used Brian Downing baseball bat at the swapmeet for only $7. Say what? This bat and his other Halo finds are housed in the collection at Halo Haven. Chris’ favorite thing about Halo Haven is meeting fans that are passionate about Angels Baseball and having the opportunity to meet them beyond the realms of social media at the Big A.
