The Angel Stadium of Anaheim is a newly renovated baseball-only facility home to the California Angels. The 30-year-old structure was named Edison International Field of Anaheim in 1997 but reverted back to the Angel Stadium of Anaheim in 2003

Since 1965, it has been the Angels? home after they moved out from Los Angeles. On April 9, 1966, the first exhibition game in the stadium happened between California Angels and San Francisco Giants. And April 19 of the same year, the first Angels? game in American League was held versus the Chicago White Sox. During that time, the stadium was limited to 43,250. When Los Angeles Ram of the National Football League used also the stadium as their home, the renovation from 1979 to 1980 adjusted to stadium?s capacity to 65,158 seats. However, when the Ram left California, another renovation took place in 1996. It was finished by first quarter of 1998, in time with the first opening game of Angels on April 1 that year. The renovation cost of the stadium was believed at $100 million.

Today, the Angel Stadium of Anaheim has a capacity of 45,050 seats. The new stadium has wider concourses and built bullpen terraces. There are new restrooms, newly landscaped courtyards, and more concessionaire areas as well inside the stadium. The press box and live broadcast booth have been widened and matched with updated facilities. The Pepsi Perfect Game Pavilion is offering an interactive game to the youth. The Angels Stadium is also house to three restaurants: a sports bar called The KnotHole Club, the Diamond Club and Homeplate Club.
