Baseball fans rejoice, the upcoming LA Angels 2018 season is rapidly approaching. We will soon discover if the hype with the Angels is real.

For the LA Angels and their fans. This season marks a new hope. A chance to be seated at the big kid’s table of the MLB’s best teams.

For the last two seasons, Angels fans have watched as the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros have claimed the American League West as their division. Last season, we watched as the Houston Astros won the World Series. A well-earned and deserved victory for the young Astros, might I add.

However, today is a new day and for now, the Angels are one of 30 teams all with the same goal. To win the World Series. Although, the Angels would benefit greatly from merely making the American League wild-card at this point.

Still within the hype of players and teams is the Angels superstar Mike Trout, who has barely experienced the postseason. Hopefully, this season will have a different story.

The pitchers and catchers will report to the Los Angeles Angels spring training home in Tempe Arizona on February 13th. The position players will report on February 19th and the first full roster practice will happen on February 20th.

The very first spring training game will happen on February 23rd against the Oakland Athletics. The Los Angeles Angels will have some decent spring training games this season. They’ll face the Colorado Rockies and Cleveland Indians in February.

In March, the Angels will get a good look at the Los Angeles Dodgers. They’ll play the defending National League Champions five times before the Angels start the season.

Opening Day for the Angels will begin on the road against the Oakland A’s. The Angels will play a four-game set against Oakland before their home opener against Cleveland on April 2nd. As we get closer to the season, the Angels will be under a microscope for much of spring training.

There will be many eyes on the pitching staff. Keeping them healthy entering the 2018 season is going to be vital to the success of the Angels.
