Originally constructed in 1965 as a baseball facility and modified in 1980 for football use, Anaheim’s professional sports stadium was completely renovated in the late 1990s to create Angel Stadium, a facility exclusively for baseball.
- The renovation included the demolition or retrofit of 100 percent of the existing facility and the design of new elements, including below-grade dugout suites, luxury boxes, a scoreboard structure and support for Disney’s “Outfield Extravaganza,” an area behind center field where fireworks and geysers erupt to celebrate good plays.
- The main entry at homeplate was renovated and expanded to include iconic “bat” supported and ballcap canopies.
- All of the work was accomplished in 18 months, primarily during two off seasons. The renovation also incorporated many significant and innovative seismic enhancements for the facility.
