Team to wear 1961 uniform on four “Flashback Fridays” beginning in late May

ANAHEIM, CA -- The Angels announced today the second “Flashback Friday” uniform that will be worn beginning with the May 20th game against the Atlanta Braves. The club has chosen to wear the Los Angeles Angels uniforms worn during the 1961-1965 campaigns when the Halos made their home in Los Angeles prior to moving south to Anaheim in 1966. These retro jerseys are part of the “Flashback Friday” celebration as the Angels will wear throwback uniforms on all 13 Friday home games. The 1961-1965 Los Angeles Angels uniform will also be worn on the following Friday home games; June 3rd versus NY Yankees, June 10th versus KC Royals and July 1st versus LA Dodgers.

The uniforms provided by Majestic will feature the vintage-style club lettering and piping along the neck, sleeves and pants that embodied the early 60’s look worn by some of the very first Angels including Eli Grba, Albie Pearson, Dean Chance and Jim Fregosi. In addition, the left sleeve on the uniform will feature the 50th Anniversary commemorative patch, while the right sleeve will bear the original LA mark. The hats provided by New Era feature the silver halo that circles the top of the hat, the LA logo on the front and will also bear the 50th Anniversary logo on the left side of the cap. Rawlings will be supplying helmets to the Angels with the appropriate look and style of that era.

Game used uniform items from each “Flashback Friday” will be auctioned off following the completion of each era. The Majestic jerseys and New Era caps will be available for sale in the Angel Stadium Team Store in the coming weeks. For more details surrounding the Angels 50th Anniversary visit:
