Angel Stadium of Anaheim (originally Anaheim Stadium and later Edison
International Field of Anaheim) is a modern-style ballpark located in
Anaheim, California. It is the home ballpark to Major League Baseball's
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of the American League, and was previously
home to the NFL's Los Angeles Rams (now St. Louis Rams). The stadium is
often referred to by its unofficial nickname The Big A.
Angel Stadium and its surrounding parking lot are roughly bounded by
Katella Avenue to the north, the Orange Freeway to the east, Orangewood
Avenue to the south, and State College Boulevard to the west. Located
near the eastern boundary of the parking lot is the landmark "Big A"
sign and electronic marquee, which originally served as a scoreboard
support. The halo located near the top of the 230' tall, 210-ton sign is
illuminated following games in which the Angels win (both at home and on
the road), which gives rise to the fan expression, "Light up the Halo!"
To the north, a train station servicing Metrolink's Orange County
Line and Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner, is located on the edge of the
stadium's parking lot. The station provides convenient access to the
stadium, the nearby Honda Center, and Disneyland from various
communities along the route, which links San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles,
and San Diego. The track is owned by the Orange County Transportation
Aside from professional baseball and football, Angel Stadium has
hosted high school and college football games, National Football League
pre-season games, the short-lived World Football League, two crusades by
evangelist Billy Graham, nearly twenty consecutive annual crusades by
evangelist Greg Laurie and musical concerts featuring such acts as The
Rolling Stones, The Who, and Pink Floyd.
Angel Stadium, the fourth oldest active Major League Baseball
stadium, was selected to host the 2010 Major League Baseball All-Star
The stadium also houses the studios and offices of the Angels' owned
and operated flagship radio station, KLAA (830 AM).
