Major League Baseball is shutdown until further notice. So what if you have tickets for upcoming Los Angeles Angels games?
Were you planning on seeing the Los Angeles Angels play in Tempe this Spring? Did you buy Freeway Series tickets for the exhibition series with the Dodgers? Were you planning on attending the home opener on April 3?
With Major League Baseball suspending Spring Training and delaying the start of the regular season, you might be stuck with tickets you can no longer use. Rest assured. The Angels have asked fans to contact their ticket representative or call 714-4ANGELS to learn about refunds and ticket exchanges.
Many Angels fans were getting ready to see the Halos play for the first time on March 22 when the team returned from Arizona to play the Dodgers in a Freeway Series exhibition at The Big A. The three-game series that would have moved to Chavez Ravine on March 23-24 has officially been canceled. If you were planning on seeing the Angels at Dodgers Stadium, one fan shared on social media that the Dodgers were issuing refunds net the service fees, or fans could choose to use 120% credit toward a game in the future.
It is possible that teams will participate in a second Spring Training whenever the league is ready to resume normal activities again, but it is unclear whether spring games will be played, or where they would be played.
Luckily, it appears the Angels have been respectful in handling calls for refunds or exchanges.
An Angels fan who prefers to remain anonymous said they were planning on driving 10 hours to see the Angels play in early April for their son’s birthday. Obviously, those plans are now canceled, or postponed.
The OC Register published a piece this morning chronicling how Angels fans are reacting to the shift in schedule. Many are surprised by the swiftness of the coronavirus impact. Just one week ago, all three professional sports leagues in season were playing games in front of packed stadiums. Now it appears baseball won’t return before May.
If you experience any difficulty in resolving open ticket issues, please let us know. We would also love to hear from people who had trips planned around Spring Training or early in the season.
