Unless Going to Playoff Games, Avoid Angel Stadium Area

The police department issued an advisory today encouraging residents and visitors to avoid the stadium area Monday, Tuesday and next Thursday before and after Anaheim Angels playoff games – unless, of course, you have tickets.

Ticket holders are encouraged to carpool and to arrive early to minimize congestion. The Angels play the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

“This is an exciting time for the city of Anaheim and for the Angels,” said Sgt. Rick Martinez. “To ensure the best experience possible for everybody, please prepare for heavier than normal foot and automobile traffic. It will probably take a little longer to get in and out of the stadium.”

  • Monday’s game starts at 1:15 p.m.
  • Tuesday’s game is scheduled for 4:57 p.m.
  • If necessary, Thursday’s game will start at 4:57 p.m.
