Angels Opening Day Affairs

Seattle Mariners visit the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Opening Day. The game won't be the only thing worth noting though, as a legend will become more legendary prior to the game even beginning.

The Los Angeles Angels open the season against the Seattle Mariners tonight at 7:00 PM.

The game will be aired on ESPN 2, but what won't be are the affairs prior.

First off, the Opening Day starting lineup for the road team, Seattle Mariners:

Abraham Almonte, CF

Brad Miller, SS

Robinson Cano, 2B

Justin Smoak, 1B

Logan Morrison DH

Kyle Seager, 3B

Michael Saunders, RF

Dustin Ackley, LF

Mike Zunino, C

Felix Hernandez, RHP


Now, of course, the Los Angeles Angels Opening Day lineup:

Kole Calhoun, RF

Mike Trout, CF

Albert Pujols, 1B

Josh Hamilton, LF

David Freese, 3B

Raul Ibanez, DH

Howie Kendrick, 2B

Chris Iannetta, C

Erick Aybar, SS

Jered Weaver, RHP


With the lineups set, we have to have a first pitch. It's only proper that a legend be the one to throw out the first pitch of the season for the respective home team. A legend it will be, with Vladimir Guerrero.

Guerrero will be throwing from the mound to now hitting coach and the only other former Angel to win a Most Valuable Player Award with the team, Don Baylor.

The first pitch won't be the only Vladdy highlight of the night. Guerrero was signed to a one-day contract today, and will announce his official retirement with the Los Angeles Angels prior to the pitch.


Make sure you find a way to catch the Opening Day game between the Mariners and Angels on ESPN 2 tonight at 7:00 PM.
