Angels doing OK under new name

Angels2Maybe the Anaheim Angels were on to something last winter by changing their name to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. People are still making fun of the “rebranding,” of course, but Angels fans are the ones laughing now. (Those special-edition Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles caps look kind of silly now, too.) Angels ownership said the name change was about developing a broader fan base. And indeed, the team had a record attendance this season. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the product this year has been top-notch.
