ANGELS BASEBALL EXHIBIT AT JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT FEATURES
SANTA ANA, Calif. - To commemorate the 56th season of Angels Baseball, John Wayne Airport is featuring the Calling All Angels exhibit in the Vi Smith Concourse Gallery, located on the Departure (upper) Level, across from Gates 2 through 5 in Terminal A, Gates 18 through 21 in Terminal C and in the free-standing display cases across from Gate 14. Ticketed passengers can view the exhibit through July 2016.
"Both Angels Baseball and John Wayne Airport have a long history in Orange County and it's only fitting that the Airport be a venue where travelers have an inside look into Angels history," said Board Chairwoman Lisa Bartlett. "When traveling through John Wayne Airport, I encourage you to explore this fascinating exhibit that features a range of baseball memorabilia from the early years to the present."
Curated by Adrienne Helitzer and Tammy Lechner, the Calling All Angels exhibit is a snapshot into the journey of the Angels through the past 56 seasons, and those who have played such an important role in the efforts to be a perennial contender on the field, and a community leader off. The exhibit includes a variety of baseball memorabilia including autographed baseballs and bats, cleats and baseball guides.
"Angels Baseball is privileged to have the opportunity to partner with John Wayne Airport in a display featuring some of the highlights and memorabilia from the organization's first 55 years," said Tim Mead, Angels Baseball Vice President, Communications. "The exhibit also salutes the fans who bring their unwavering energy, enthusiasm and optimism to the ballpark on a daily basis."
