ANGELS ANNOUNCE ENHANCEMENT TO OFFICIAL BASEBALL

All Rawlings ® Major League Baseballs at Angel Stadium in 2011 will feature 50th Anniversary Logo

ANAHEIM, CA -- The Angels announced today a commemorative enhancement to the Official Rawlings ® Major League Baseball that will be used on-field during all 2011 home games at Angel Stadium. All Rawlings® baseballs used during game action will now feature the commemorative 50th Anniversary logo. Not only will this add to the 50th Anniversary celebration at Angel Stadium, it will offer fans the unique opportunity to collect a piece of 50th memorabilia for every home run or foul ball that leaves the ballpark.

During the course of an 81-game home schedule, the Angels use over 4,400 baseballs per season (on average). With home runs and foul balls, that amounts to a large number of 50th Anniversary fan souvenirs during the 2011 season at Angel Stadium.
