Where the Future Began, Part 3

I’m home from Statesville, with lots of Angels minor league history in tow.

Ed Thomas and Jerry Fox were two independent players signed locally by the Owls in 1961. Thomas was signed after the season by the Angels and spent two seasons in Triple-A. Fox retired from baseball and went back to real life.

Jerry’s wife Janet loaned me a home movie her family made that year of the Owls. It runs only about 1 ½ minutes, but it’s the only known footage of the original Angels’ minor league team.

More to come …
