About the Ticket Supplier: Angels Baseball

The Angels were founded by former actor Gene Autry in 1961 and played their first five seasons in Los Angeles. After the 1965 season the club moved to Anaheim and began playing in their new stadium.

In 1972 the Angels acquired right-handed pitcher Nolan Ryan from the New York Mets. In his eight seasons with the team, Ryan led the league in strikeouts seven times and in shutouts twice; he also threw four of his all-time-record seven no-hitters.

California won its first division title in 1979 under manager Jim Fregosi, a former Angels shortstop. Don Baylor, who led the league in runs batted in (RBIs) and runs scored that year, became the first designated hitter to be named the AL most valuable player (MVP).

Superstar outfielder and designated hitter Reggie Jackson joined the Angels in 1982 and led the league in home runs to power California to its second division championship.

Manager Gene Mauch guided the team to a 93-69 win-loss record before the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Angels in the AL Championship Series.

Mauch retired in 1983 but returned as manager two years later. In 1986 he directed the Angels to their third division crown with a team that featured veterans Jackson, third baseman Doug DeCinces, pitcher Don Sutton, and rookie first baseman Wally Joyner. The Angels again lost the AL Championship Series, this time to the Boston Red Sox.

The Angels came close to a division title in 1995, ending the season in a first-place tie with the Seattle Mariners, but they lost in a one-game playoff.

Their four decade long quest was finally realized when the Angels won the World Series in 2002, with a team led by former Dodgers catcher Mike Scioscia.
