Sad news for Los Angeles Angels

Longtime Angels Coach Passes Away

Sad news out of the Angels organization this morning.

The Los Angeles Angels received some unfortunate news on Sunday morning. Long-time Angels coach Bill Lachemann passed away at the age of 89.

The Angels confirmed to Halos Today that Lachemann died Saturday.

He served as the bullpen coach for the team under the manager at the time Marcel Lachemann. Working alongside his brother made the game even more special for him, and it was an opportunity that he never took for granted.

Lachemann was still active in 2018 at the age of 84, participating as the Angels roving catching instructor. He loved the game of baseball and never let his passion for it go away.

He was known for being the first one out onto the field, even in his advanced age. The love of the game kept him going, and players resonated with it. Former Angels manager Mike Scioscia spoke about Lachemann’s work ethic back in 2013.
