1,500 Attend Angel Game to Support Randy Quick

When the image of Anaheim police officer Randy Quick flashed on the scoreboard at Angel Stadium tonight, cheers erupted.

The team’s president John Carpino donated 1,500 tickets throughout the stadium to the Anaheim Police Association, which is heading up efforts to support Quick, who collapsed during the department’s run from Baker to Vegas two months ago.

What was initially thought to be dehydration turned out to be a condition known as rhabdomyolysis – a rapid breakdown of skeletal muscle.

“The Angels are amazing,” said Sgt. Rick Martinez. “Thank you to our hometown baseball team and 1,500 friends who were there to support one of our own.”
