Outfielder Darin Erstad was one of the better player in Angels’ history. Erstad played 11 years for the Angels appearing in 1,320 games in which he was 1,505 for 5,258 (.286 avg, .756 OPS) with 818 runs scored, 114 homers, 625 RBIs and 170 stolen bases. He was a All-Star two times for the Angels and he won 3 Gold Gloves and 1 Silver Slugger Award with them. The 2000 season was easily Erstad’s best with the Angels. He played in 157 games that year for the Angels and he was 240 of 676 (.355 avg, .951 OPS) with 121 runs scored, 25 homers, 100 RBIs and 28 stolen bases. This was in the height of the steroids ERA however as despite his great numbers Erstad finished 8th in the voting for the A.L. MVP Award. Erstad finished his career #5 in Angels’ history in games played with 1,320. He also is #4 in runs scored (818), #4 in doubles (279), #6 in triples (30), #4 in RBIs (625), #7 in walks (419) and #4 in stolen bases (170) in Angels’ history. It certainly was fun to watch Erstad play as no one played harder than him.
