“The Los Angeles Angels will open the 2021 season Thursday evening, facing the Chicago White Sox with fans at Angel Stadium for the first time since Sept. 29, 2019.
With Orange County in the orange tier of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, Angel Stadium’s capacity will be limited to 33% of its full 45,517-capacity or about 15,000.
Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu said he will drop by the stadium before Thursday’s game to wish all the team’s administrators well.
“I’m just going to go and say hello to everyone,” Sidhu said, adding he is so busy with pandemic response duties he cannot stay to watch the game.
“I’m so glad that finally the pandemic has slowed down and we have an opportunity to enjoy the game for Orange County and the people around us,” Sidhu said.
Sidhu also wanted to tell team executives, “Thank you for having patience for almost a year.”…“
