Angels' Front Office Puts Graphics Front And Center At Ballpark
New “big, bold, bright, high-resolution iconic images” of six Angels -- 1B Albert Pujols, LF Mike Trout, Ps Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson, DH Mark Trumbo and RF Josh Hamilton -- are “being installed this week on the facade surrounding Homeplate Gate,” according to Marcia Smith of the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER. Graphics installer Jeff Seaman said of Angel Stadium, "The Angels have done a great job of dressing up a rather old lady." The ballpark's current “curb appeal is largely the product of its graphics-minded front office.” Angels Owner Arte Moreno was “a billboard advertising magnate before buying the team in 2003.” Seaman and his two-man crew for the past three weeks “have been putting in six-day work weeks to apply more than 200 graphics to the ballpark before the 2013 season begins.” Seaman has “already put up 40 player graphics on the concourse columns and 70 terrace-level trestle graphics.” Seaman on Monday night, “began the multi-panel installation of the six player murals that cover the giant windows on the front of the stadium” (ORANGE COUNTRY REGISTER, 3/19).
