The Los Angeles (now Anaheim) Angels have one of the largest fan followings of all teams. The team won the 2009 AL West division championship (beating out the Mariners, Rangers and Athletics that year) for what was the third season in a row. Then 2013, was yet again the fourth year in a row when the team didn’t make it to the postseason, though it was the 11th straight year with the Angels being able to draw over three million fans who were in attendance. This fact alone meant that there were 30 seasons attended by at least 2 million fans…talk about being fan magnets!
Though the Los Angeles Angels have often been the center of various controversies, the fans never left their side. That’s why they are one of the most watched teams and a big reason why Americans have cable in the first place.
