Los Angeles Angels Details
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels joined the American League in 1961. The team is named in honor of the original Los Angeles Angels — a minor league baseball team that played in the area from 1903 until the 1950s. The Angels have won nine American League West division titles but have made only one appearance in the World Series.
That World Series appearance was a win in 2002, after the Angels qualified for the postseason as a wild card team. Their series victory over the Yankees in the 2002 ALDS, 41 years after they joined MLB, was the first ever for the Angels. After their win in the ALCS over the Minnesota Twins, the Angels won the AL Pennant for the first time. They went on to face another California team, the San Francisco Giants, in the World Series. The Angels made a dramatic six-run comeback in the 7th and 8th innings of Game 6 and won decisively in Game 7 to capture the first World Series in franchise history. Third baseman Troy Glaus was the World Series MVP.
The most successful period in Angels’ history began shortly after their World Series win. They missed the playoffs in a disappointing 2003 season but followed up with division titles in six seasons between 2004 and 2009, missing the playoffs just once in 2006.
In 2017, the Angels improved on their previous season but fell five games short of the American League’s last wild card spot. The Angels have one the best players in baseball in Mike Trout and a likely future hall of famer in Albert Pujols. They should field an exciting team in 2018 and hope to compete for a playoff spot again.
The Angels play at Angel Stadium, which opened in 1966. The stadium is famous for the 230-foot Big A sign in its parking lot. The halo on top of the Big A lights up after every Angels win.
