Hudler Is Reinstated by Angels

Angel television commentator Rex Hudler, suspended late last season after being arrested and charged with marijuana possession, will return next season, club President Dennis Kuhl said Friday.

"Rex has been an important part of the Angels, both behind the microphone and in the community," Kuhl said. "While his situation earlier this year was unfortunate, there has been no lack of regret or accountability on his part."

Hudler said, "Life is a series of situations and the choices we make. This experience has affected me in countless ways across the spectrum. At the same time, it has allowed me to fully understand the areas of growth and change that were needed in my life."

Hudler, after his arrest at the Kansas City airport, said he occasionally used marijuana to help him sleep.
