About Los Angeles Angels

The Los Angeles Angels were a team based in Los Angeles, California that played in the Pacific Coast League from 1903 through 1957, after which they transferred to Spokane, Washington to become the Spokane Indians. Los Angeles would later become the host city to a Major League Baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, in 1958 after the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. This move made the PCL obsolete and it would eventually become a minor league affiliate of the MLB. From 1903 through 1957, the Los Angeles Angels, a PCL team, were one of the mainstays of the Pacific Coast League, winning the PCL pennant 12 times. The Angels, along with the Portland Beavers, Oakland Oaks, Sacramento Solons, San Francisco Seals, and Seattle Indians were charter members of the Pacific Coast League which was founded in 1903. From 1903 through 1925, the team played at 15,000-seat Washington Park (also known as Chutes Park), at Hill and Eighth Streets in downtown Los Angeles.
