  • Game changer: Angels move to Downtown?

    With Angel Stadium aging, team could drop the 'of Anaheim'

    LA Times

    What could possibly wipe the smiles off the faces of Magic Johnson, Stan Kasten and Mark Walter? How about the Angels moving into a new ballpark in downtown Los Angeles, three miles from Dodger Stadium?

Hopefully the Los Angeles native Angels will come home to Los Angeles where they belong much as the Los Angeles Chargers will be coming home after 51 years of being away.

The Alameda Specific Plan entitles a downtown stadium next to Union Station providing an easy opportunity to move the Angels to a location that not only has the best public transit in Southern California but also entitles alcohol service. A downtown station can help catalyze the north end of downtown, especially Chinatown and Olvera Street, which have not received the investment most other parts of downtown have received.
