Mike Scioscia Nails Down Win 1000
"It's not a personal accomplishment," the Los Angeles Angels skipper said following the game. "As a manager, you're one small part of this whole thing."
Scioscia is now 1000-817, good for a ..550 winning percentage. This is 12th season as Angels' manager which makes him the longest tenured manager in the American League and second longest in the Majors behind LaRussa.
In 2007, with his 626th victory, Scioscia became the winningest manager in Angels' history, surpassing Bill Rigney.
