Baseball season is in full swing—plan your perfect game day with our guide to Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
By Laura Okey
Not everyone enjoys a bag of peanuts or a simple hot dog when watching Mike Trout hit a home run. And sometimes, our favorite player’s name on our jersey just isn’t enough—we want it customized. Also, “pregaming” is a skill that requires careful planning. Plan your perfect baseball game experience with our guide to Angel Stadium of Anaheim—discover where to eat, where to shop and where to pregame this season.
A fan favorite since its launch in 2016, Crafty Dawgs (Section 127, Field Level) features hand crafted hot dogs brimming with specialty toppings.
