Where Are They Now? : KEN LANDREAUX

Times staff writer David W. Myers catches up with former Dodgers and Angels

Outfielder Landreaux made his debut with the Angels in 1977 but was sent to Minnesota two years later in a trade that brought Rod Carew to Anaheim. He was traded to the Dodgers in 1981 and helped them to three divisional titles before retiring in 1987.

Landreaux, 39, said he battled alcohol and drug problems after he quit playing. But he got sober a few years ago and is now a family and drug-abuse counselor at Bellwood Health Center in Bellflower. He and a former Twin teammate, Darrell Jackson, also recently started the Athletic Connection Team, a program to help active and retired athletes kick substance-abuse problems.
