Anaheim Stadium - the home of the California Angels (earlier, the L.A. The stadium has a seating capacity of about 44,000.Angel Stadium began its life as a baseball-only park with a seating capacity of 43,250 in 1966. On its inaugural day, the California Angels hosted the San Francisco Giants in an exhibition game.A major reconstruction undertaken in 1979, in order to accommodate NFL's Los Angeles Rams, increased the seating capacity to 70,000, and transformed the stadium into a completely enclosed, multipurpose facility, ideal for both professional football and baseball.But in the mid 1990s, owing to a variety of reasons - the departure of the Rams, a major earthquake, and the Disney organization’s business interests leaving for a more intimate venue – the stadium was downsized to a more compact baseball-only facility once again.Quite often, Angel Stadium is criticized for being caught between two eras. In fact it has played host for some of the more important games in history - the Angels had twice hosted the All-Star Game (1967, 1989), and a World Series, in 2002.Features in the stadium include terraced bullpens in the outfield, widened concourses, new restroom and concession areas, a spacious and modernized press box and broadcast booths, family-oriented seating sections, state-of-the-art club-level and dugout-level suites, the Pepsi Perfect Game Pavilion, and landscaped courtyards.Disneyland is not far from the stadium, as is the Crystal Cathedral, Reverend Robert Schuller's television studio/church, which is situated to the south of the stadium.
