History: In the first-ever MLB expansion, American League owners were keen to grab a piece of the new Southern California territory the NL Dodgers had pioneered three years earlier. The new club adopted both the name and the ballpark (Wrigley Field) of the old Pacific Coast League team. In their second season, the Angels moved into Dodger Stadium (calling it “Chavez Ravine” for marketing purposes) and won 90 games, making a run at the pennant. Vintage cotton-backed satin with wool knit shoulder inserts.
