LA Angels Press Box on the Move in 2013

The baseball reporters that will swarm Angel Stadium in April for Josh Hamilton‘s debut won’t be sitting behind home plate during the 2013 MLB season.

The club announced Thursday that they are in the process of converting the press box into a luxury seating area, meaning the baseball scribes will now be situated down the right-field line.

Los Angeles Angels Address ‘El Hombre’ Billboards

One problem — “El Hombre” translates to “The Man,” which is the nickname of former St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial.

Dating back to his time with the Cardinals, Pujols didn’t want to be associated with the nickname, out of respect to his relationship with Musial. He voiced his concerns about the billboard campaign last week while addressing the media at Spring Training.
