Angels Announce 'Flashback Fridays'


The Angels will wear retro jerseys for every Friday night home game during the regular season and have announced the schedule for those games.

For their July 8 game against the Mariners, they will wear the California Angels jerseys from the 1993-96 seasons, featuring the ‘CA’ logo with navy piping along the neck and sleeves. The same uniforms will be used for home games August 5 vs. the Mariners and August 19 vs. the Orioles.

For the final Friday home games of the season (Sept. 2 vs. the Twins and Sept. 23 vs. the A’s), the Angels will wear the 1971-72 uniforms featuring the lower case ‘a’ and tilted halo logo.

The promotion will start with the home opener on April 8 against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Angels will wear throwbacks from the late 1980s for that game and the following two Friday home games (April 22 vs. Boston and May 6 vs. Cleveland).

The retro jerseys and caps will be on sale in the team store at Angel Stadium. Game-used uniforms from each of the Flashback Fridays will be auctioned off following the completion of each era.
