Social media reaction: Mike Scioscia leaves on high note
After 19 years as the Los Angeles Angels' manager, Mike Scioscia bid farewell to the team that hired him in October of 1999. Among his many accomplishments, such as winning a World Series with the team in 2002, he also became the Angels manager with the most wins 11 years ago.
Even though Scioscia did not want a heartfelt goodbye tribute, his bobblehead was given out during Saturday's game, the day before his final day as manager of the Angels.
To cap off the emotional day, Scioscia's Angels beat the Oakland Athletics on a walk-off before the manager said his goodbyes at a press conference attended by some of his own players.
With his powerful presser also came a slew of thank yous from his longtime team and peers.
Even our very own Alex Curry thanked Scioscia for his kindness and demeanor throughout his tenure.
