Lefty swinging LF/RF Leon Wagner was only with the Angels for three short seasons early on in their existence, but he made his mark. Wagner played in 442 games in his three years with the Angels and he was 451 of 1,615 (.279 avg, .831 OPS) with 243 runs scored, 91 homers, 276 RBIs and 17 stolen bases. His best year came back in 1962 with the Angels. Wagner played in 160 games for the Angels in 1962 and he was 164 of 612 (.268 avg, .826 OPS) with 96 runs scored, 37 homers, 107 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Wagner was an American League All-Star in 1962 and he finished 4th in the voting for the A.L. MVP Award. Wagner’s 37 homers in 1962 tie him with Bobby Bonds for the 5th highest one year total in Angels’ history.
