The first Cy Young award winner in Angels history Dean Chance is the focus of this edition of LA Angels Insider Podcast.

Chance was the winner of the 1964 Cy Young Award back when the award was only given to one pitcher n a season. Dean led the American League in wins (20), innings pitched (278?), and earned run average (1.65, which is still a franchise record). He was also third in the American League in strikeouts, with 207. Chance pitched 11 shutouts that season, winning five of those by a 1-0 score.

Chance talks to Jeff Biggs about his time with the Angels, what Los Angeles was like in the early ’60s, playing in Chavez Ravine, his teammate Bo Belinsky, and former Angels owner Gene Autry.
