Los Angeles Angels Betting Odds

The Los Angeles Angels have been playing in the MLB since 1961. They have won several division titles in their existence, but only have one World Series appearance in their history. The team gets its name from the English translation of the City of Los Angeles. There had been a minor league team named the Angels playing out of South Central LA since 1903 in the Pacific Coast League, so when Actor Gene Autry, the team's first owner, was awarded the franchise he bought the rights to the name for his new MLB team.

History

Autry owned the team for the first 36 years of its existence, in which the team made the playoffs three times, but they never won a pennant. They started playing their games out of LA’s Wrigley Field, which was home to the former minor league Angels but moved in their second year to Chavez Ravine, or Dodger Stadium as it is widely known. The teams shared the stadium through 1965 until Anaheim Stadium was built in 1966. The team also changed its name to the California Angels around that same time and kept the name until 1997 when the City of Anaheim contributed $30 million towards the renovation of their stadium under the stipulation that the team be called the Anaheim Angles. That lasted until 2005 when new owner Arturo Moreno added Los Angeles to the team name.

Titles

The only time the Angles ever won the World Series was in 2002 when they defeated in-state rival San Francisco in 7 games. To win the series, the Angels had to come back from a 5-0 deficit in the seventh inning of game six, where they were facing elimination. The team went on to score six runs in the next two innings to capture game six before sealing a victory on the road in game 7.

Famous players

The Angels have retired only three player numbers in their history. Jim Fregosi, Rod Carew, and Nolan Ryan all have their numbers retired for the club, along with Coach Jimmie Reese and former owner Gene Autry. Fregosi was a shortstop who played for the Angles from their inception in 1961 until 1971. He was the Angel’s most productive player through their first decade. He led the AL in double plays for two straight years and won the Gold Glove award in 1967.

Carew played for the Angles from 1979 to 1985. He appeared in the All-Star game every one of his years with the Angles. In 1982 he had a 25 game hitting streak despite having broken a bone in his hand earlier in the same season. In 1985 Carew recorded his 3,000 career hit with the Angels.

Nolan Ryan came to the Angles in a trade from the Mets in 1971, and immediately was a success, recording 329 strikeouts in his first season as an Angel, and only got better from there. He set an MLB record by allowing only 5.26 hits per nine innings that year and posted a 2.28 ERA.
