The Angels first brought their brand of baseball to the West Coast in 1961. During the club's first four decades, it experienced patches of success?a trend that changed in 2000, when a new manager took the reins. Since his arrival, he has spearheaded six playoff appearances, including the Angels' first World Series title in 2002. Today, the team's consistent play unfolds inside Angels Stadium of Anaheim, a 45,000-seat facility that features terraced bullpens, a towering right-field wall, and an artificial-rock structure above left-centerfield. Though artificial, the structure serves a true purpose as the launching point for the stadium's famous fireworks?sky-high explosions that let the world know that an Angel has either hit a home run or received the wings for his bee costume.
