Wally Joyner Returns To Where It All Kicked Off

Updated: March 13, 2017

A rather familiar face is back in town, albeit it may be temporary when all is said and one. It is a man who temporarily inspired a catchy axiom to formulate in his earlier days appropriately called “Wally World.”

According to Doug Miller, the former longtime California Angel, Wally Joyner, is back in familiar territory. After logging the last few seasons as a hitting coach for the Detroit Tigers, it is safe to say that he is as free as a bird at the time being due to his desire to explore other opportunities.

He has been generously offering help as a guest instructor in camp and even imparted that it is “‘good to be back home.’”

The former first baseman recently disclosed that he is currently on the lookout for anything job-related. Even though the Angels may not have something immediate to offer him, he is certainly worth keeping in touch with. Wally is currently amidst a week of being present at camp and insinuated that he would be more than happy to lend a hand with the organization’s minor league affiliates every now and then.

Joyner exhibited that the Halos happened to ask him “‘to just use my eyes a little bit, help out with some hitters’” throughout the course of the next assortment of days. For example, Miller further explains that he has been working with the highly promising prospect Matt Thaiss and former Tiger Cameron Maybin.

Joyner is apparently slated to leave camp as soon as this Wednesday, yet any help the 1986 All-Star can provide should be treasured by those that are there. Opportunities along these lines are not common, so the team should therefore relish every nugget of information Joyner is able to contribute.
