Number 9 certainly isn’t dressed to the nines. He’s arguably stylish in his sleeveless white jersey over a carnelian T-shirt, with color-coordinated batting gloves and wristband, but one detail has been overlooked.
Adam Riggs played in only 61 Major League Baseball games, but one of ‘em was memorable — for the wrong reasons. Starting in left field for the then Anaheim Angels against the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 16, 2003, Riggs adorned a poorly rigged uniform.
Good heavens! Where the hell is the L? On that summer day in 2003, Anaheim had Angels and Angees in the outfield, courtesy of some super-unnatural stitching. Oh, gees!
The Angels beat the Tigers 11-7, and Riggs scored a run, but as long as this picture exists, he’ll remain something less than a celestial being. That’s right: He’s no Angel.
Change that second E to an L, however, and, like Riggs, things are looking up.
