Though the Los Angeles Blues are firmly attached to California, they celebrated their inaugural season like any newlyweds would: they headed to the Caribbean. In the team's first official weekend of play, it earned back-to-back wins over Sevilla Puerto Rico and Antigua Barracuda on their home turfs. Winning became a theme for the Blues that season, as they surged to the playoffs in the nascent USL Pro League. Since those early triumphs, the Blues have expanded beyond play in the USL Pro, taking on teams from other leagues during the annual U.S. Open Cup, participating in international exhibitions, and constantly fending off squirrels trying to steal the game balls for their acorn hoards.

Currently hovering around second place in the Golden Baseball League's south division rankings, the Flyers roster boasts two of the league's top hitters: Jimmy Rohan and Tyler Keeble, both of whom are batting over .400 after 13 games. By coupling their power-hitting pulchritude with Manny Ayala's wormhole-producing fastballs and World Series winner Byung-Hyun Kim's cybernetic rocket arm, Orange County's finest are pining to unseat the Yuma Scorpions, who have dominated the division so far this season. Beyond that, the Flyers hope to repeat the magic of their 2008 season, when the team won the GBL Championship Series and got to hold Marissa Dulgar's hand while staring at the stars from her parents' porch swing.

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.

The story of the Los Angeles Dodgers begins in 1884 in Brooklyn, New York, where the team tried out such names as the Bridegrooms, the Superbas, and the Robins before finally settling on the Dodgers in 1932. A scant 15 years later, the club played a vital role in the American civil-rights movement, as Jackie Robinson became the first African American to don a Major League uniform. When Robinson retired after the 1956 season, players such as Don Drysdale and Duke Snider picked up the torch and, along with owner Walter O'Malley, led the team on a cross-country move to Los Angeles in 1958. The club settled into its new home four years later, erecting the stadium in which it's since won four World Series titles. Unlike most modern fields, which use giant green screens to appear surrounded by city skylines, Dodger Stadium sits in the shadow of the real San Gabriel Mountains, and the 56,000-seat ballpark was selected by MLB players as the best stadium in baseball in a 2003 Sports Illustrated poll.
