Los Angeles Angels Franchise History:
The Los Angeles Angels entered the American League in 1961 and have been based in Anaheim since 1966. The franchise didn't experience much success in the early years of their existence and it wasn't until 1979 when they made their first MLB playoffs appearance. The Angels made further playoff appearances in 1982 and 1986 and on both occasions were one game away from qualifying for the World Series. After rebuilding and a chance of ownership in the 1990s the Angels returned to the playoffs in 2002 and surprised many experts by going on to claim their inaugural World Series Championship. Ever since their World Series triumph the Angels have been the dominant franchise in the American League West Division winning five division titles in six years. Although they have slipped slightly in recent seasons with a strong young team they are primed to be contenders for the next decade.
Los Angeles Angels Offensive Star: Mike Trout
Mike Trout was selected with the twentieth-fifth overall pick of the 2009 MLB draft. After dominating in the minor leagues he received a permanent call-up to the Majors in 2012. Trout took full advantage of the opportunity and put together one of the most impressive rookie seasons in the history of professional baseball. He was the unanimous winner of the Rookie of the Year Award, was awarded the Silver Slugger Award and finished second behind Miguel Cabrera in the vote for American League MVP. Despite not starting the season in the Majors Trout still finished the season with the most runs and stolen bases in the American League. At just twenty-one years of age Trout is, arguably, the most exciting prospect in the history of Baseball.
Los Angeles Angels Defensive Star: Jered Weaver
Jered Weaver was selected with the twelfth overall pick of the 2004 MLB draft by the Los Angeles Angels. Weaver spent little time in the minor leagues making his MLB debut in 2006. The right hander finished his rookie season with an 11-2 record and was a leading contender for the American League Rookie of the Year Award. Weaver has continued to improve and is now considered one of the elite starting pitchers in Major League Baseball. Despite suffering a mid-season back injury Weaver still finished the 2012 season tied for the most wins in the American League. If he can avoid injuries Weaver still has a number of years left as an elite MLB pitcher.
Los Angeles Angels Manager: Mike Scioscia
After a stellar playing career Mike Scioscia spent several years as a minor league manager and major league coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers before being hired as manager of the Los Angeles Angels in 2000. Since his appointment Scioscia has led the Angels to their only World Series Championship as well as five American League West Division titles. He was awarded the American League Manager of the League Award in 2002 and 2009 and in 2011 became the 23rd manager in MLB history to win 1000 or games with a single franchise. Scioscia is one of the most popular managers in all of Baseball and will be looking to maintain his stellar record with the Angels for many years to come.
