Two weeks ago Angels vice president of marketing and ticket sales Robert Alvarado made headlines for his quotes about how the team caters to wealthier fans while often neglecting what he called “people on the lower end of the socioeconomic ladder.”

And now Alvarado has resigned from his job with the Angels.

Angels vice president of communications Tim Mead told Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times that Alvarado “made a personal decision to resign from the organization” and “we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

However, according to Shaikin the quotes upset Angels owner Arte Moreno, who showed recently the lengths he’s willing to go to get rid of someone in the case of Josh Hamilton. And so after 15 years with the organization Alvarado “made a personal decision to resign.”
