At the end of the 2010 season, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim announced that they would be switching affiliates from the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes to the Inland Empire 66ers for their high Single-A team. Essentially this was a cross-town swap between the Angels and Dodgers as both clubs swapped their Cal League affiliation. Moving from parent clubs is not uncommon in the Minor Leagues, as they typically sign 2-year contracts of affiliation with a Major League organization.

In preparing for the upcoming 2011 season, interviewed Kevin Shaw, Executive Vice President for the Inland Empire 66ers to find out more about the club, its history, its ballpark, the surrounding area, and the overall experience that Angels fans can expect when attending a 66ers’ game. Kevin is a passionate baseball fan who, like the Angels, used to work with the Quakes and now works with the 66ers. Having worked with the Angels while with the Quakes, Kevin has plenty of knowledge of former Angels prospects and how they fared at the lower levels. believes that all fans should attend Minor League games, as it is an incredible entertainment value and a chance to see future Major Leaguers before they become stars. With all the talent that the Angels have in the lower ranks of their Minor Leagues, all Angels fans, and particularly those in Southern California, should make a point of driving out to San Bernadino and catching some games.
