The Los Angeles Angels have struck a deal with Anaheim that would keep in the city through the 2050 season. The Angels released a statement shortly after:
“After years of uncertainty, we have a path forward for baseball in Anaheim,” Mayor Harry Sidhu said in a statement released by the city. “This proposal reflects what we've heard from our community by keeping the Angels in Anaheim, bringing money for our neighborhoods and the prospect of more affordable housing, parks and jobs for Anaheim.”
Under the proposal, the Major League Baseball team would purchase Angel Stadium and the 153 acres of land on which it sits with its surrounding parking lots for $325 million. The team would also commit to playing in Anaheim through 2050, with options that could extend the deal through 2065.
Earlier in the year, the team's future had really been put in to question after the city of Long Beach offered to build the Angels a new waterfront stadium. However, they were aggressive in their efforts to keep the team in Anaheim.
