As the Angels embark on a new season, I have a signed baseball in my collection at home that probably isn't worth much money. But I don't care. Suffice to say that it's probably the only baseball in existence signed by Chad Curtis, the Angels' left and center fielder from 1992 to 1994, and his wife. Yes, his wife. And anyone can see that, because, unlike the average ballplayer's, her handwriting is quite legible. Right now, of course, it's hip to love the Angels.

Six people were arrested Sunday after officers were summoned to a dispute between people fighting over the two baseball teams. Police said the 1:45 a.m. incident took place near Main and Walnut streets, a crowded intersection just blocks from the beach. Officers said the incident apparently began when a woman wearing an Angels jersey got into a dispute with two people who were talking about the Dodgers.

Joe Haakenson grew up a Los Angeles Dodgers fan. His allegiance was to Dodger Blue. At the time, he knew of but didn't closely follow that other Major League Baseball team one county away in Orange County. Now he knows plenty about that organization. Working as a writer with the Los Angeles News Group in the late 1980s, Haakenson ventured into rivalry territory when he took on the role of beat writer for the then-California Angels, a team that would later be known as the Anaheim Angels and then the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

ORANGE - When the field was set for the 2013 CIF Southern California Regional Division 1 boys' volleyball playoffs earlier in the week, Huntington Beach High Coach Craig Pazanti said he had asked his team to "finish things the right way. " The Oilers had just come off a title-clinching performance, but their season was not yet complete. Pazanti got his wish Saturday. One week after capturing its first CIF Southern Section Division 1 championship, Huntington returned to Santiago Canyon College and won its first CIF regional title by beating the same opponent, Los Angeles Loyola, it had defeated on this same floor on May 18. As was the case in that first meeting, the Oilers squeezed past the Cubs in five sets, winning by scores of 25-22, 20-25, 29-27, 20-25, 15-12.

Allynne Noelle was portraying a Turning Girl in "Symphony in 3 Movements" when she snapped her Lisfranc ligament. With adrenaline coursing through her veins, the Huntington Beach-born ballerina didn't discover her injury until she fell out of bed the next morning, overwhelmed by pain. A soloist at the Miami City Ballet in November 2009, Noelle knew that the turnaround time was too short for the company to replace her before its matinee performance in a few hours. A combination of Aleve and "the show must go on" attitude got her through the rigorous Balanchine ballet, as well as the next 10 months.

Last week, I wrote about my experience going undercover with Greg Reese, president of Clear Image Investigations, a local private detective firm. The 20-year veteran of the Huntington Beach Police Department started his business last May and, since then, has dedicated large chunks of his time to trying to save young women who have become entangled in the many human trafficking networks throughout Orange County. Shocking as it may seem, thousands of young people have fallen prey to traffickers right in our own backyard, and the OC provides lots of fertile ground - starting with many business travelers who order up prostitutes as easily as they order room service.

"A cement-covered marshmallow. " That's how Katherine Coones describes her husband Rusty, a 6-foot-5 biker bear of a man who, despite what some might consider to be an intimidating presence, is disarmingly warm and engaging. On Goldenwest Street right near the 405 Freeway is Illusion Motorsports, the world this couple (along with Rusty's business partner, Rodrigo Requejo) has been building for more than a decade. They call it "the premier motorcycle customizing shop of Orange County," and after a tour, it's obvious why. Though they'll do tune-ups and other bike maintenance here, it's the design and building that they're primarily focused on. Several dozen bikes in various stages of creation and design are on display, including one $80,000 beauty that Rusty is customizing for a local businessman.
