Better option if in the LA area Sep 10, 2016
Located in Orange County, the Angel Stadium of Anaheim is the home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Getting there, is tricky without a car. There are trains to get there, either by Amtrak or Metrolink. And very close to the stadium.

Angel Stadium has gone through a bunch of name changes over the years, just like the team itself. Opened in 1966, after the Angels shared Dodger Stadium with another team for a few seasons. It is currently the 4th oldest stadium in Major League Baseball. And once was the home of the Rams in football, from 1980 to 1994.

If arriving by train, it will drop off around the outfield area. But I recommend going to the home plate entrance first, which has some nice architecture in itself. There are the large bats and the 2 Angel hats. And even looks nicer when it is lit at night.

Some other features to check out, include some wall photos in one of the bottom concourses. One of them showing the names and pictures of those who made it into the Angels Hall of Fame, plus the entire 2002 World Series team. Also, there are a couple statues, one of them being that of long-time owner, Gene Autry. A nice acknowledgement to its history.

From the upper deck seats, you can see the mountains in the distance, and the Honda Center. And a little rock mountain, with a waterfall, behind center field. Fireworks may come out of it, whenever the Angels hit a home run. A great place to watch baseball, with its nice atmosphere. I feel like the staff are much more friendlier here, than that other stadium a short distance away.

If there are any downsides, one of them is definitely the location, mainly if you don’t have a car. Getting there is not the problem, but getting back is the problem, as public transportation is very spotty. And the overall design stadium, does look like one of those multi-purpose stadiums from the 70’s and 80’s, but this is just a nitpick on my part.

Overall, I find Angel Stadium to be a really enjoyable place to watch a game. In fact, if one comes to the Los Angeles area, and had to choose which stadium to watch a game, I would definitely pick this one. It does feel like it is almost everything that a certain ballpark in LA, is not.

This stadium has always looks good on television. There doesn't seem to be much interest in upgrading the LA baseball stadiums, which seems odd.
