Angel Stadium

 

The Walt Disney Corporation has made its appearance with this stadium on two occasions. In August of 1964 Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Goofy, among other celebrities were on hand at the groundbreaking for Anaheim Stadium. In 1996, Walt Disney Corporation change the name from the California Angels to the Anaheim Angels and undertook a multimillion dollar renovation of the park.

 

When the ballpark first opened, its most distinctive feature is the 230 foot tall A-frame scoreboard with a halo on its top, but it was moved to the parking lot outside the stadium in 1980 for earthquake safety considerations. The towering scoreboard inspired the familiar nickname of that ‘Big A’. The ballpark's first major renovation was in 1979 when it was modified to serve both baseball and football. The stands were expanded to close the outfield providing seats for some 22,000 additional spectators. The renovation of the late 90s restored the ballpark to a small baseball only facility, and today holds about 45,000 fans.

The waterfall display and a rocky setting beyond the centerfield fence was also added during the overall, as were more luxury boxes, new seats and concession stands, all geared toward giving more fan friendly atmosphere for baseball. Though generally known as a hitters park, the park has low fences near the foul poles of outfielders to rob hitters of home runs. The fans in the sections tend to aid the Angels outfielders and catching opponents long drives, while making it more difficult for the visiting fielders to steal home town home runs.

 

Getting to the park: Angel Stadium and its surrounding parking lot are roughly bounded by Katella Avenue to the north, the Orange Freeway to the east, Orangewood Avenue to the south, and State College Boulevard to the west. Located near the eastern boundary of the parking lot is the landmark "Big A" sign and electronic marquee, which originally served as a scoreboard support. The halo located near the top of the 230' tall, 210-ton sign is illuminated following games in which the Angels win (both at home and on the road), which gives rise to the fan expression, "Light up the Halo!" To the north, a train station servicing Metrolink's Orange County Line and Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner, is located on the edge of the stadium's parking lot. The station provides convenient access to the stadium, the nearby Honda Center, and Disneyland from various communities along the route, which links San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The track is owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority. The Grove of Anaheim, a concert hall, is on the northwest corner of the parking lot. Parking: There's plenty of parking in the Angel Stadium lot. You could, also, in theory park in a local business and walk in. Address/Directions: 2000 E Gene Autry Way, Anaheim. Like anything else important in the Los Angeles area, the ballpark is within close proximity of a freeway -- in this case I-5. Take the State College Boulevard exit from I-5 (in either direction) and head north to the ballpark.

 

TV and Radio The flagship stations for the Angels are AM 830 KLAA (English) and ESPN 1330 AM (Spanish). The Angels Radio Network, Skyview Networks, affiliate stations include: KFWB 980 AM - Los Angeles CA KGEO 1230 AM - Bakersfield, CA KGAM 1450 AM - Palm Springs, CA KLOA 1240 AM - Ridgecrest, CA XSPN 800 AM - San Diego, CA KKZZ - 1400 AM - Ventura, CA KVTA - 1520 AM- Ventrua, CA KELY 1230 AM - Ely, NV Television KCOP - Channel 13. Concessions and other things:

 

Concessions The food at Angel Stadium, there are no must haves. You have hot dogs made by Farmer John -- the same outfit that makes Dodger Dogs -- and you've got a pretty decent selection of beers on tap and in the bottle, including Sapporo, Firestone and Foster's. Beer prices are affordable a small beer is still only $4, premium beer is $6 or more. Also, sandwiches, a Mexican cantina in center field, and other concessions -- Carl's Jr., Dominos, and Panda Express to name a few. For the Kids A center-field play area features various activities and special children's concession offerings, such as PB&J sandwiches and corn dogs. This is a suburban park, there are no places to hang out before or after a game.
