Aside from going independent after severing ties with the California Collegiate League last winter, the Glendale Angelenos didn't change a whole lot about their approach to fielding a summer collegiate baseball team.
Most of the frontline players from last year's inaugural season are back and General Manager and Coach Tony Riviera has continued to heavily mine talent from Glendale Community College's ranks to fill in the rest of the lineup.
"Probably the most important part of baseball is consistency, so what I wanted to make sure of is that we had the opportunity to put up a really talented season," said Riviera, whose team will once again play its home games at Stengel Field, where it opens the season at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday against the EastL.A. Dodgersof the Norwalk Santa Fe Springs Baseball League. "We do that by bringing in the players that we know we can count on and we know are true, solid baseball players."
