Anaheim Angels Tickets
Details of Anaheim Angels and the Ticket Luck value
The Los Angeles, Angels of Anaheim is a professional baseball team, based in Anaheim, California. The Angels are a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball's American League. The name Angels was driven from the city that was their original home, Los Angeles. A lot of fans know them as the Halos, a nickname given to them for the halo existing in the team's logo. The Angels have been based in Angel Stadium of Anaheim since 1966.
History of the Anaheim Angels
Originally, the team was founded in Los Angeles in 1961. Initially, the team was based at Los Angeles' Wrigley Field. The name of the team was changed several times in the past. In 1965, the team came to be known as California Angels. This name was given to highlight the fact that it was the only team in California.
Later, the famous Disney Company took over in the year 1997, and revitalized the Angel Stadium. This renovation was started under the condition that both the stadium and team's name will contain the word Anaheim. The main aim of the Disney Company was to make Anaheim the home of Disneyland and develop it into a popular tourist destination. This is how the team began to be known as Anaheim Angels.
In 2005, another owner took over the team. He was known as Arte Moreno and he wanted to add the word Los Angeles in the team's name. His main ambition was to strike the Los Angeles media market more effectively. The team's name begins to be known as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Once the name was announced, it faced a lot of criticism and the case was taken in the court and is still under consideration till this day. However, the team is usually referred to as Angels within its home media market.
The American League Comes to Los Angeles
For some years now, there has been news of an existing American League team relocating to Los Angeles. Considerable efforts were made in this regard, but none became reality.
Finally, it was the National League who first came into the city and was known as Brooklyn Dodgers. The owner of Dodgers purchased the Pacific Coast League's Los Angeles Angels in the early 1957from Chicago Clubs owner, Phil Wrigley. Under the policy of that time, he also managed to acquire the rights to a major league team in Los Angeles. He used these rights a year later and moved Dodgers there. In normal circumstances, this should have prohibited any more subsequent American League presence in the Los Angeles area.
However, in an attempt to stop the proposed Continental League from becoming a reality, the two existing leagues agreed to expand in 1960, adding two new teams to each of the league. This expansion of teams had taken place under the condition that no major league baseball will come into existence; however this agreement soon broke down. When the National League placed a team in New York (the Mets) as part its tenth franchise, the American League announced its plans to place an expansion team in Los Angeles, to start playing in 1961. Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg was selected as the team's first owner and Bill Veeck as his partner. Later, Autry purchased the franchise.
The Team gets its Name
Autry named the new franchise the Los Angeles Angels. The name Angels is a natural name for the Los Angeles team, since The Angels is a literal English translation of the Spanish Los Angeles.
The 1960s: Early AL years
In 1961, the first year of the team's existence, the Angels gained the highest winning percentage ever for a first-year major league expansion team. The most favorites of the team were baseman Steve Bilko and El Monte, a center fielder. The first inaugural season was played by the Angels at the Wrigley Field in South Los Angeles.
In 1962, the Angels moved to the Dodger Stadium and stood at third place. On May 5 of this year, Bo Belinsky became famous by hitting the no-hit game in the history of Dodger Stadium.
