Newhan, incidentally, wrote a surprisingly good book about the Angels' history a couple of years ago. I say surprisingly merely because it's not a fluffy, rah-rah kind of history (then again, how could it be?), but rather a fairly sober assessment of their long and mostly tragic history up through the 1999 season. Newhan has been covering the Angels since their start in 1961, and was actually present for some pretty pivotal events in their history.
