GARRET ANDERSON
Anderson, considered by many as one of the most consistent hitters of his era, retired after 17 seasons in baseball. Anderson played 15 seasons with the Angels and guided them to a World Series win in 2002 over the Giants. The four-time All-Star won two Silver Slugger awards and finished with a .293 average with 2,529 hits, 287 home runs and 1,365 RBIs. Between 2000-03, Anderson averaged 30 home runs and 120 RBIs with a .299 average in the middle of the lineup for manager Mike Scioscia.
