Angel Stadium of Anaheim
Capacity: 45,389 Opened: 1966
Who didn’t love the movie “Angels in the Outfield?” Head to Angel Stadium of Anaheim for a truly divine ballpark experience!
What makes this stadium unique?
Though Angel Stadium is MLB’s fourth oldest, the renovations in 1996 hide it well. The stadium is decked out to the nines in Angels’ insignia- from the main entrance with the double baseball caps that light up at night to the player posters throughout the concourses. In the outfield there is some “Pride Rock” action (aka Outfield Extravaganza area), which is appropriate since Disneyland is down the road. On your way out of the parking check to see if the “Big A’s” halo is lit, signifying an Angels’ victory!
Dining and Nightlife
The Juke Joint
Parking is super cheap, only $10 next to the stadium! Again if you go to Throwbacks before the game they provide a shuttle there and back. Starting 2011 season, Amtrak will be running special trains to all weeknight games starting at 7:05 pm for $7 roundtrip. This is a great option if you stay in L.A. and don’t want to drive.
