interlocking L and A.
that is why I posted it.
I was looking for an vintage Angel's jersey and a bunch of crap from the last turn of the century came up. Been around since 1903. Doyers, not so much. But the Brooklyn Doyers were founded in 1883.
I bet those jerseys/unis were hot in LA summers, with no AC cooled clubhouse. They are nice looking for the era. I would say tops I've seen from two turn-of-the-centuries ago
LA Angels were booted when Brooklyn was signed to come west. They then moved to Northwest. Regardless Angels were here first. played at wrigley field-LA version.
Angels have a longer history here than Dodgers. Didn’t know that!!!
The Anaheim Angels stole the Angels name from the minor league team, they are not affiliated. The current version(in Anaheim, not LA to be clear) was an expansion team playing in LA beginning in 1961, three years after the Dodgers moved west.
At least the minor league was in LA when they used the LA logo
More info....1892-1957!! That’s way before Brooklyn got here.
When Dodgers came the Angels were sent to WA state lol. Then Gene Autry bought the Anaheim franchise (via expansion) and came back down here.
Crazy talk no? Maybe not.
angels predate doyers (in la) but as a minor league team In PCL.
Doyers predate angels as a MLB team here in LA. By just a few years tho. Dodgers played at coliseum while Chavez ravine was built. Then angels played in Chavez with Doyers while Anaheim was built in early 60’s.
Thank you Wiki.
I guess your hat could be for the PCL LA Angels which were here when Brooklyn Dodgers were in...well Brooklyn!
Tommy Lasorda was a not very good left handed pitcher on the Los Angeles Angels in 1957. sc
The MLB Angels played their first season in Wrigley Field, at 42d and Avalon. It was the park where the PCL Angels had played and also the setting for Home Run Derby. Great place to watch a game because it was a real hitters' park and they were playing in an expansion year with watered-down pitching. That's what made it the perfect place for Home Run Derby.
I became an Angels fan when the AL announced it was expanding to L.A., because I hated the Dodgers so much and wanted a team I could root FOR.
The first Angels game I attended was a game against the Red Sox in 1961, the year after Ted Williams retired. As I was going through the turnstile with my dad and uncle, my uncle told me to turn around and ask the guy behind me to autograph my glove. It was Ted Williams, and he did.
The Dodgers used to own Wrigley Field. They traded it to the City for the land in Chavez Ravine. Pretty good deal.
