Things get underway in April 1961 with the Angels league debut and resulting victory against the Orioles.

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.
