A young Angels fan surprised broadcaster Victor Rojas with one of his dad Cookie's old jerseys
Over more than seven years as the TV voice of the Angels, Victor Rojas has become a local institution. Really, just listen to this walk-off home run call:
With passion like that, it's no wonder that Angels fans have grown attached to their broadcaster. And before the team's 8-2 win over the A's on Tuesday, one decided to get him a special gift to say thanks -- namely, one of his dad's old jerseys:

You never know what's going to happen on a daily basis. Today, I was surprised in the booth by Logan Wohlt, 2017 Angels fan of the year. I was told he wanted to come up to the booth because he had a gift for me. This 8 year old proceeded to tell me he wanted to get this for me so that I may pay it forward & give it to my son...the gift was my dad's 1999 Mets uniform in its entirety. I'm still an awe of what just happened & I'm not the only recipient of his generosity...thanks, Logan & you're welcome in our booth anytime. Give him a follow: @baseballandbubblegum
Victor is the son of Cookie Rojas, a utility man who spent 16 years in the Major Leagues before moving on to a career in coaching. He served as the third-base coach for the 1999 Mets, helping New York advance all the way to the NLCS with some, uh, unique motivational tactics:
Of course, Logan Wohlt isn't just any Angels fan. The 8-year-old was just recently named the team's Fan of the Year, thanks in large part to this extremely adorable video he recorded earlier this month. Clearly, the honor was well-deserved.
