Tired of the losing, Tony Tavares resigns as president of the Anaheim Angels. The 52-year old executive, who until today also was the chairman of the Mighty Ducks, became Anaheim's president after Disney bought the team from Jackie Autry in 1996. He will be appointed by Major League Baseball as President of the owner-less Montreal Expos in a few weeks, while the Angels will go on to win their first World Series title in October.
