Angels of Anaheim Book - Gift Details
Using reprints of Los Angeles Times reports written at the time, this LA Angels of Anaheim newspaper book is the perfect way for fans to relive the teams biggest moments.
Things get underway in April 1961 with the Angels league debut and resulting victory against the Orioles. Also included in the books early coverage is the move from Los Angeles to Anaheim in 1966, a move which led to a huge increase in attendances from less than 600,000 a season to over 1.4 million a then league record. Thereafter, all of the Angels biggest moments are included.
In the 1970s, for example, the book has lots of coverage revolving around the Ryan Express. In fact, although the 1970s were'nt filled with much success for the team, the fans were at least able to enjoy fireballer Nolan Ryans heroics. In 1974, for instance, he set a new American League record as he struck out for 19 against the Boston Red Sox. He also played an important role in the teams West Division title in 1979.
Thereafter the book includes Rod Carews 3,000th career hit in 1985, as well as further West Division titles in 1982, 1986, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009. And, of course, theres the small matter of the Angels first and, as yet only, World Series title in 2002. Beating the San Francisco Giants 4 games to 3 in the highest-scoring World Series of all time, third baseman Troy Glaus was named MVP of the Series.
