Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Brandon Marsh was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 2nd round of the 2016 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Todd Hogan. A medical examination conducted after the draft revealed some stress fractures in his back, so he did not make his professional debut until the next year, 2017, when he played 39 games for the Orem Owlz of the Pioneer League, hitting .350/.396/.548.

On August 19, 2021, a month after making his major league debut for the Angels, he should have hit his first career homer against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. His drive off Matt Manning in the 2nd inning bounced off the top of the fence in right field and back onto the playing surface, and he made it all the way to third base with a triple. However, replays clearly showed that the ball bounced beyond the yellow line that demarcates homers, and should have been ruled a home run - except that the Angels never asked for a video review. He then added a second triple later in the game as Los Angeles mounted a remarkable comeback from a 10-2 deficit in the 6th to win the game, 13-10. He was the first Angels player to have two triples in a game since Erick Aybar in 2011.
