Angels In Talks to Possibly Move Team to Long Beach

The Los Angeles Angels, who currently play their home games in Anaheim, are currently in talks to potentially move the team Long Beach.

The team is reportedly talking to the city of Long Beach in regards to building a new stadium for the team there. The stadium would be made on a Downtown waterfront lot, according to the Long Beach Post’s Jason Ruiz.

Potential site for the baseball stadium could be off Shoreline Drive in Long Beach.

The Angels have been considering their options as they face a decision to make on where to play when their lease in Anaheim expires in 2020.

According to reports, the new stadium would potentially be constructed on a roughly 13-acre lot southeast of the Long Beach Arena and Performing Arts Center.

The Angels have been playing at the Anaheim stadium since 1966. It is the fourth-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball.

In October, the Angels opted out of their long-term stadium lease with Anaheim after talks with the city broke down. The move allowed the team to explore other venues.

Originally the lease extended only through the 2019 season, but in January the city and team officials agreed to a one-year lease extension through 2020.

The city of Anaheim has not yet given up on the possibility that the team stays put long-term. The Angels arrival in Long Beach can’t happen until the start of the 2021 MLB season.
