Trout tied this 2014 game in the 8th inning, but there were still 4 more hours left

We are back at the Mike Trout home run daily, where we look back every single home run hit by Mike Trout in his career, one game at a time. Our random number generator takes us back six years to one of the longest games in Angels history.

The Angels hosted the Red Sox on August 9, 2014, a seemingly innocent Saturday night contest in Anaheim.

Cal Poly outfielder played high school ball at Chino Hills

The Angels signed an undrafted free agent this week, so far the first one reported to date. Outfielder Elijah Greene, a redshirt junior from Cal Poly, has signed on with the Angels.

Greene hit .269/.332/.309 in 56 games in 2019, and was 8-for-34 (.235) this year before the coronavirus pandemic shut down the college baseball season after just 13 games.

Injuries really hurt his career in Anaheim

Kendrys Morales

Time with Angels: 2006-2012

Stats: .281/.331/.491/.823, 79 HR, 265 RBI, 455 H, 216 R, 464 G, 119 OPS+

Baseball Reference WAR: 7.8

FanGraphs WAR: 6.4

Combined WAR: 7.1

It’s a real shame we never got to see what Kendrys Morales could have done with the Angels had he been healthy throughout his tenure with the club. During his seven seasons in Anaheim, Morales appeared in only 464 games, an...

Back in 2015, Trout became the second Angel to hit 40 home runs in a season.

Welcome to the Mike Trout home run daily, where we look back at every home run Mike Trout has hit so far in his career, one game at a time. We use a random number generator to pick each game, and today brings us back to late in the 2015 season.

The Angels were in a playoff chase in the final two weeks of the season, and September 22, 2015 was the middle game of a series against one...

Angels’ fifth-rounder Adam Seminaris living out longtime dream

@ASeminaris

It doesn’t get any better than this

When Angels fans heard that the team drafted left-handed pitcher Adam Seminaris in the fifth round of the 2020 MLB Draft, a lot of them had probably never heard his name before. There were definitely a few fans who were familiar with him, as he was a local guy who played his college ball at Long Beach State, not too far from Angel Stadium.

Well, it turns out, he was an Angels fan growing up, who had aspirations to one day play for the...

Anthony Rendon hoping for sweet music with Angels

Rendon prefers music to piped-in crowd noise in an empty Angel Stadium

If new Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon had his druthers, there wouldn’t be fake crowd noise during games, or the intrasquad games the team is playing now at summer camp in Anaheim.

“It’s like two of your senses that aren’t coinciding with one another. That’s like, if you’re looking at a pizza, but you’re smelling a hamburger,” Rendon said on a Zoom call with reporters....

Angels release 2021 MLB schedule

The 60th anniversary of the team

The Angels announced their schedule for the 2021 MLB season on Thursday. The 2021 campaign will be the 60th anniversary of the club.

For the first time since 2016, the Angels kick off the season at home. They’ll open up against the Chicago White Sox. This will be the seventh time the two clubs have faced each other to begin the season, and the first time it’s happened since 1992.

Don Baylor wins Player of the Week, one of 6 Angels All-Stars

Baylor drove in 13 runs and homered five teams in a 5-2 week for the Halos.

The 1979 Angels had a very efficient week, winning a four-game series against the A’s followed by a weekend series win over the American League East-leading Orioles. The result was the Angels reaching 50 wins in their 86th game, the second-quickest in franchise history to date (behind only the 1970 team, who did so in 85 games).

California saved its biggest...

2016 was the third of Trout’s five 20-HR, 20-SB seasons to date

Today’s Mike Trout home run is one of his many (well, eight in all) long balls against Felix Hernandez of the Mariners. Though King Felix was able to get the last laugh in this one.

On August 15, 2016 the Angels hosted the Mariners on a Monday night in Anaheim, with Ricky Nolasco pitching for the Mariners.

Trout has eight career home runs against Hernandez in his career, his most against any...

Teheran spoke with Enrique Rojas at ESPN Desportes, and said he’s still in Atlanta, after he and his family experienced coronavirus symptoms. Teheran is currently awaiting test results.

One of 34 games with a HR & SB for Trout

Hello again from the Mike Trout home run daily, where we look back at every single home run of Mike Trout’s career, one game at a time, using a random number generator to determine each day.

Today we go back to July 22, 2018, the final game of the Angels’ first series back after the All-Star break, hosting the Astros in Anaheim. Trout homered in that year’s All-Star Game, in Washington D.C., but was 0-for-6 with...

Ohtani, Heaney back on the mound in intrasquad game

Highlights from Angels summer camp

The Angels played an intrasquad game at Angel Stadium on Tuesday evening, with Shohei Ohtani back on a major league mound and facing opening day starter Andrew Heaney.

Ohtani last pitched in a major league game on September 2, 2018, his only start in the last 25 months, with Tommy John wiping out the mound portion of his 2019 season. Just the thought of Ohtani back as a true two-way threat again is exciting for the Angels, and...

The best player in baseball is now immortalized running the bases in a mask on new shirts available from BreakingT

There aren’t fans yet in MLB stadiums — and sadly there won’t be for some time, including at the start of the 2020 regular season, which begins for the Angels on Friday, July 24. So you likely haven’t seen players in workout drills or intrasquad games at Angel Stadium.

But you might have seen video or perhaps pictures from the first few days of what MLB is...
