Angels, swimming upstream, order Salmon
The Angels have invited Tim Salmon to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before tomorrow's must-win game against the New York Yankees.
Salmon, the Angels' all-time leader in home runs, was the star of the first World Series victory in club history. He hit two home runs -- one the game-winner -- in an 11-10 victory over the San Francisco Giants, in Game 2 of the 2002 World Series.
