Guest announcer has funny name suggestion for Angels’ rock formation
The Chicago White Sox are using guest announcers for their series in Anaheim while usual analyst Steve Stone takes a breather. So far, these guest announcers have been a hit.
On Friday night, Bill Walton joined play-by-play announcer Jason Benetti as the guest, and the results were fantastic. Saturday’s guest announcer was Michael Schur, who is best known for being a writer and producer of “The Office” and co-creator of “Parks & Recreation,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and “The Good Place.”
Schur is a longtime baseball fan who used to write for the site FireJoeMorgan.com under the name “Ken Tremendous,” which he still goes by on Twitter. While calling Saturday’s Angels-White Sox game, Schur said the rock formation beyond the outfield wall at Angel Stadium should be called “Trout Falls,” and there should be actual trout swimming in the waterfall.
Schur thinks the Angel Stadium rock formation/waterfall should be called "Trout Falls," and that there should be "actual trout swimming around in that water," and I think he's half right.

There’s a reason why Schur is a creative genius and tremendous writer. We completely agree.
Here’s what the rock formation/water fall area looks like.
