Ricky Adams…

Ricky Adams, whose Major League Baseball career featured being a member of the Angels’ 1982 Western Division championship team, died early Friday following a lengthy bout with cancer.

Adams was 52.

“The Angels organization and their alumni are deeply saddened to hear of Ricky’s passing,” said Tim Mead, Angels vice-president of communications. “There is always a special bond with any member of the Angels family.

...At the age of 23, Adams made his major-league debut with the Angels on Sept. 15, 1982. He played in 66 games as a utility infielder during the 1982 and 1983 seasons.
