CUTE RED HARD HATS? UNFINISHED ANGELS' STADIUM OPENS
Published April 1, 1997
The opening of the "under-construction" Anaheim Stadium was examined by Barbara Kingsley in the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER. As ushers wore "cute red hard hats," Kingsley wrote, "except for some complaints about missing bathrooms and misplaced seats," fans who attended an exhibition game Saturday night gave the unfinished ballpark a "thumbs-up." The fans with the "biggest complaints" were those who were "bumped" to make room for the Diamond Club, on the stadium's lower-level, which won't be ready until '98. Thirty-year season-ticket holder Nina Rogers, whose seat was moved from near home plate to near first base: "I love the Angels, but I hate Disney" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/30).
