Thanks to COVID-19, 2020, it has been a weird year for professional sports. Despite the numerous changes and cardboard cutouts in place of fans, we’re still cheering on the Los Angeles Angels, who are based right here in Anaheim! While the season is well underway, there’s still some time to show your support! Things may look a little different, we’ve got some tips on how you can support the Angels and enjoy America’s pastime from the comfort of your own home.
Show Off Your Angels Gear
Grab those hats, foam fingers, fun signs and posters, and all your red and white Angels apparel. Go crazy and have fun with it — just like you would if you were attending a game in person. Even if your family are the only ones that will see it, donning the Angels colors still puts you in the right spirit and adds a little fun to game day!
Enjoy Your Favorite Baseball Foods
