Angels rename ballpark to Angel Stadium of Anaheim


December 29, 2003
ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) - The Anaheim Angels have renamed their 37-year-old ballpark to Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the team announced Monday.

The Angels made the change following a recent decision by Edison International to exercise its option to pull out of its 1998 naming rights agreement.

"We appreciate the working relationship we have shared with Edison International," Angels president Dennis Kuhl said. "We anticipate a continuing relationship in the future."

The facility opened in 1966 and was known as Anaheim Stadium through the 1997 season.

A series of renovations began in 1996 to revert the stadium back to a baseball-only facility and on September 15, 1997, it was renamed Edison International Field of Anaheim.

Reminds me of the Ballpark in Arlington. Neither name is very appealing. :-{
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Time for another utility company to jump in and save the day by buying the naming rights. ;-7
