No one would have described the site of the Angels’ new stadium as heavenly on August 30, 1964, when team owner Gene Autry and other dignitaries thrust their golden shovels into the ground and turned the tired soil of a bulldozed cornfield. A row of eucalyptus trees — the remnants of a windbreak — towered above the three wooden stakes marking the future location of home plate. Tumbleweeds rolled nearby, while in the distance, beyond parallel rows of alfalfa and an orange grove, State College Boulevard hummed with traffic.

The official logo of Baseball’s 86th Midsummer Classic features a nostalgic design, symbolic of the historic heritage of the Reds franchise in professional baseball. The iconic pill box hat and handlebar mustache is a playful reflection on some of the sport’s original players. The etched type celebrates the jewel event as a flying star punctuates the copy. The crossed bats represent a traditional baseball design, while the addition of deep red creates dimension to the Club’s colors of red and black.
