Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels and the city of Anaheim have agreed to an extension:
BREAKING: #Angels and city of Anaheim expected to agree to one-year lease extension, keeping team at Angel Stadium through 2020. https://t.co/0uva51CSEI— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) January 10, 2019
Now, this wasn’t the home run extension Billy Eppler had been hoping for, but this is important nonetheless. A one year buffer period increases the likelihood that the city and the team can agree to a long-term extension, as Shaikin goes on to report.
The Angels have been in this stadium for 1966.
