Salmon, Chance, Witt to be inducted into Angels' Hall of Fame

The Los Angeles Angels are set to add three new players to its Hall of Fame -- one hitter and two pitchers.

Outfielder Tim Salmon and pitchers Dean Chance and Mike Witt will be the 11th, 12th and 13th players to receive such an honor.

Salmon owns the most career home runs hit as an Angel (299). He currently works for FOX Sports West as an analyst on 'Angels Live'.

Chance won the 1964 Cy Young Award and, at the time, was the youngest winner in the award's history. Witt led the Angels in wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and complete games during a stretch from 1984 to 1987, and he also tossed a pefect game in 1984.


"To add these three outstanding performers to our Hall of Fame is a proud moment for our organization and fan base," said Angels Owner Arte Moreno.  "From Dean's memorable Cy Young campaign in 1964, to Mike's 109 career wins as an Angel and Tim's contributions during his 14-year career, these inductees are responsible for some tremendous memories in our organization's history."

The inductions will take place Saturday, Aug. 22, when the Angels square off against the Toronto Blue Jays.
