Angels broadcaster Mark Langston returns to ballpark as an ‘absolute miracle’

Mark Langston was at Angel Stadium on Sunday, smiling and happily greeting everyone, and toting a stack of papers that illustrated why he believes it’s a miracle that he was there at all.

The Angels radio broadcaster had the printout from the heart monitor attached to him by paramedics when he blacked out in the broadcast boost just before the first pitch of a game.

It showed 3-1/2 minutes in which Langston was, clinically, dead.

Langston's a beaut, as a player, then a broadcaster, and as a person in general. I'm so glad he's all right.

The Angels broadcast team is much better since they dropped Rex Hudler, glad Langston is ok.
