Armando Rivas

The Angelís #1 Fan rarely misses a game

June 06, 2003
The Santa Paula Major Division Little League Angels have a very loyal fan, who hardly ever missed a game this season. Armando Rivas, whoís just over three years old, loves baseball. One evening Armando and his dad came to the Little League field and watched an Angelís game. After that Armando came to almost every Angels game and many practices as well.Angelís manager Chris Gomez was so touched by the loyalty of Armando that he introduced the youngster to the players and bought him an Angels T-shirt. Armando even got to meet Little League President Lalo Mota, who shook his hand and gave him an official little league baseball.Armando enjoys playing catch with his dad and weíll probably see him on the little league field in a few years.
