Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Had a great time on Saturday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim California. Perfect day for baseball with the sun shining brightly (80 degrees) and blue clear skies.

We had a great viewing venue with a private company suite...

Plenty of goodies to eat including good old fashioned hot dogs with all the trimmings, spicy italian sausages with peppers and onions on rolls, roast beef with carmelized onions on baguettes and plenty of ice cold beer.

Angels fan in support of "Pujols" the newest addition to the team.

The main entrance includes two giant Angels hats complete with New Era tags on the sweatband (including one indicating the hats' size 649½). The hats were originally blue and featured the Angels' "winged" logo designed by Disney for the 1997 season, and were repainted red and decorated with the present-day halo insignia for the 2002 season. Also outside home plate gate is a full-sized brick infield complete with regulation pitcher's mound and lighted bases, with bricks at each player position engraved with the names of Angels players who played at that position on Opening Day of each season since the Angels joined the American League in 1961.

Angel Stadium has been the home of the Angels since their move from Los Angeles. In 1964, ground was broken for Anaheim Stadium and in 1966, the then-California Angels moved into their new home after having spent four seasons renting Dodger Stadium (referred to during Angels games as Chavez Ravine Stadium) from the Dodgers.
