Stadium Guide by Baseball Tripper
We would like to start this article with the general hint that all of the West teams were started later in history than the teams on the East Coast or those that you will now find in the Central Division. Despite their later start, they are actually one of the first expansion teams in the entire league. The team has been a part of the league since 1961 and got their name from the former Los Angeles Angels who were a minor league franchise in a local league. They originally called South Central Los Angeles home for quite some time, but they have been based in Anaheim since 1966. Some fans know them as the Anaheim Angels and others called them the Los Angeles Angels, but these names are rather quite similar.
It took the team over 60 years to win their first World Series which came in 2002. This is still the only World Series that the Angels have ever won. Actually their playoff run began with a wild-card berth rather than a division title. This is quite rare, but obviously they were the best team in the league at the time and they certainly proved starting from nowhere and working their way up to the top.
Their history is still being made however with the now-famous Mike Trout out in center field for the team. They also have Anthony Rendon at third base and the famous Shohei Ohtani pitching and in the outfield. They do not want to waste Mike Trout’s prime years, but they also seem to be ticking away at the same time. This team has a lot of potential to continue making history in the future and it makes for an exciting team to watch. We highly suggest you keep your eyes on this team going forward in the 2021 MLB season.
