Los Angeles Angels – 2002 World Series winners
Formed by a singing cowboy back in the early 1960s, MLB franchise the Los Angeles Angels are best known for their World Series victory in 2002. With every game a thrilling experience, baseball fans certainly do not want to miss out on this one! Check out the range of Los Angeles Angels tickets currently available on StubHub.
Formed by The Singing Cowboy
The team was first formed in 1961 as a Major League Baseball expansion team by Gene Autry, a hugely popular entertainer known as The Singing Cowboy. Four years later, the team was rechristened the California Angels, a name that stuck until Disney Sports took control in 1997. Having previously reached the playoffs on three separate occasions, the team then known as the Anaheim Angels finally got the chance to pick up the coveted World Series pennant in 2002 when they defeated the San Francisco Giants Schedule over seven thrilling games. In 2005, the team once again changed their moniker to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and over the following decade won an impressive five West Division titles. Players Nolan Ryan, Chuck Finley and Vladimir Guerrero, and coaches Rod Carew, Jimmie Reese and Jim Fregosi are just some of the greats who have been inducted into the Angels Hall of Fame over the years. For some of the most exciting games in the league, you can both buy and sell Los Angeles Angels tickets on StubHub now.
The fourth-oldest stadium in the MLB
Following brief stints at Wrigley Field and Chavez Ravine, the Los Angeles Angels moved into their permanent home, the Angel Stadium, in 1966. Nicknamed "The Big A", the 64,000-capacity venue was also once home to NFL team the Los Angeles Rams and is the fourth-oldest in Major League Baseball. Renowned for its striking centre field section known as the California Spectacular, the Angel Stadium always provides an electric atmosphere, particularly when rivals the Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Dodgers come to town. It’s also a venue that welcomes several traditions, including numerous mantras ("Light That Baby Up", "Just Another Halo Victory", "Win One for the Cowboy") and music anthems (Train’s "Calling All Angels" and Norman Greenbaum’s "Spirit in the Sky"), not to mention its use of thundersticks and, of course, legendary mascot The Rally Monkey.
