About Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim joined the American League in 1961. After playing their inaugural season at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles, the Angels called Chavez Ravine home from 1962-65. The franchise then moved into the newly-built Anaheim Stadium — known today as Angel Stadium of Anaheim — in 1966. Since their inception, the Angels have won the American League's West Division eight times (1979, 1982, 1986, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009) and have made nine appearances in the postseason. After capturing the 2002 Wild Card, the Angels went on to win one of the most memorable World Series in recent history by defeating the San Francisco Giants in seven games. The franchise will celebrate its 50th Anniversary this year.
