    ANA Angels

    That's Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles, California.

    Any way, any Halo fans out there? I would like to get your take on the upcoming season.

    Re: ANA Angels

    I had heard rumor of another "professional" baseball team in the Greater Los Angeles basin. I thought somebody was was speaking "tongue-in-cheek" of Cal State Long Beach...

    Re: ANA Angels

    You mean the team that won the Series in 02'? The "Original" LA team?
    Yes, the Angels were a PCL team that started play in 1892. Just some history for Dog fans who seem to forget who the true LA baseball team is.

    The Los Angeles Angels were a minor league baseball based in Los Angeles, California that played from 1903 through 1957. They were members of the Pacific Coast League.

    Pretty interesting read, actually.... if one has an interest in baseball history in Calif... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Ang...gels_%28PCL%29

    Actually the California-Anaheim-Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim would be my AL team of choice...

    Glad the name Seraphs didn't stick! ....

    Re: ANA Angels

    Your right, they were in the PNL I believe and started play in 1892 in several different leagues until the formation of the PCL. My point was however, that the Angels were in SoCal long before the Dodgers showed up. Any way, I used to pull for the Dodgers back in the late 70's early 80's, until my friends jumped on the bandwagon, (they used to be Angels fans). But now since I live in SD County, I pull for the Padres in the NL.

    Los Angeles Angels 2006 3,406,790 42,059 Angel Stadium of Anaheim
    Los Angeles Dodgers 2006 3,758,421 46,400 Dodger Stadium

    In case anyone wonders who the "real" LA baseball team is, here is a link to attendance #'s for 2006. The Angels can ride the Dodgers coattails all they want, they will always be second fiddle to the mighty Dodgers.
