May 23, 2009


Los Angeles, the largest city in the state of California and home to almost 13 million people, rich in fashion, business, media and science, is nicknamed ‘The City of Angels’. ‘The Angels’ it is that once made this city very proud; California’s baseball team . As a member of the Western Division of Major Baseball’s American League they have been based in Angel’s Stadium of Anaheim since 1966. They are still one of the biggest and popular baseball teams in USA and with their long history they are one of the oldest as well.

Almost all sports lovers in USA would know the angelic letter ‘A’ which is the symbol of the team Angels. Their first year of major league started with a bang of 70-91. No other team in the history of baseball has ever been able to achieve that. That alone will give an idea of how much money and interest has been put in to the team. They are considered as all time strikeout kings in major leagues and Nolan Ryan is one of their biggest assets.

Angels first established themselves as ‘Los Angeles Angels’ that did not last long until they moved to Anaheim . In 1965 team ownership announced the Los Angeles Angels would henceforth be known as the California Angels. From then on they took over the Anaheim stadium, with the view of San Gabriel and Santa Ana Mountains which was once known as one of the most attractive stadiums in the United States. But with the expansions been done and regular upgrades to the stadium, it has become more majestic and bigger in concrete..

Had the Angels not been just one strike away from winning they would have won the 1986 and 1982 World series.So Angels baseball underwent a decade of frustration without being able to give the final punch although they could be happy with the performances. The 90’s on the other hand became a decade that all Angels baseball supporters would like to forget. The team lost many important individuals to murders and suicides; their bus met with an accident injuring many of their players and it was bad news all the way. It was even said that some sort of a curse has been put in the team. Many believed that the Angels baseball stadium was under a curse because it was built on an ancient Indian burial ground. In 1996 in hope of rescuing the Angel’s baseball, the Walt Disney Inc took complete control over Angels. Then they were given a new name by the Disney Company as ‘Anaheim Angels’. This is something that was largely opposed by fans however; the Angels had no choice but to move forward. 2002 registered as the year won their first world title. But later Disney sold Angels to Angels baseball and the team is now called as Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Still after many years the legendary Angels are right up there with the best. Their path was never filled with roses but has been unforgettable and amazing. If you are keen on the history and the latest news, keeping up to date with Angels baseball heroics would not be difficult with all sports websites dedicated just for them.
