Alfredo Griffin, shortstop 1988 stats: .199, 1 HR, 27 RBIs Griffin has been a coach for the Angels since the 2000 season. What is your most memorable moment from that season? "Without question, Kirk Gibson's home run. Davis pinch-hit for me, he walked, stole second, and that was it, Kirk hit the home run, I was just jumping around like crazy." What went through your mind when Kirk Gibson hit that Game 1 homer? "That was incredible. Oakland was playing good, was winning the game, that changed everything around. It was amazing." Do you ever wear your World Series ring? "Don't wear it too much because they bother me too much when I get on a plane. If it's a private flight, would wear it, but on a regular flight, people want to touch it."
