The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of California of the United States of the World
|The verdict is in: The Angels can have Los Angeles in their name even if they aren't in Los Angeles|
In the end, the battle between the city of Anaheim and the former Anaheim Angels over the team's name came down to one word: include.
A jury ruled late Thursday that the Angels owner Arte Moreno did not breach a contract with the city when he changed the team's name to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last January. In a 9-3 verdict, the jurors found that the new name was consistent with a 10-year-old stadium lease agreement, which only specified that the team name should include the word Anaheim in it.
Oh well. They will never be the Giants.
