Angel Stadium of Anaheim has hosted pro-football games, soccer matches, concerts and pretty much every grand spectacle imaginable. Most notably, however, the stadium has been the home of Angels baseball since it was built in 1966.
The Big A
Angel Stadium, affectionately known as the “Big A,” is one of the most iconic ballparks in Major League Baseball. Although it’s the fourth-oldest MLB ballpark, major league improvements have kept it modern and comfortable. In fact, during renovations, California Spectacular, a Disney-imagined sculpture featuring a cascading waterfall and dancing fountains, was built and sits behind centerfield today. During special nighttime games, fireworks light up the sky over the outfield.
More Than Peanuts and Crackerjacks
No game is complete without an Angel Dog. Enjoying one of these is as essential to your visit to Angel Stadium as singing The Foundations’ “Build Me Up, Buttercup” during the 7th inning stretch. Perhaps you’re craving a little something more comforting. Stop by the Big Cheese for gourmet ballpark grilled cheese.
