“The Los Angeles Angels and the Inland Empire 66ers have developed a strong relationship that we are excited to build on over the coming years,” Los Angeles Angels General Manager Billy Eppler said. “The San Bernardino community and the 66ers front office show incredible support for our players at an important step in their development.
Inland Empire 66ers General Manager Joe Hudson says there are a multitude of reasons that make this partnership so successful. Topping the list of those factors is the San Manuel Stadium facility and proximity to the parent club.
“We couldn’t be prouder to continue working with a top-class organization like the Angels,” Hudson said. “Our front doors are less than 50 miles from each other and that gives the big club a nearby base for player evaluation and assignments. Furthermore, San Manuel Stadium has a top notch playing surface, clubhouse facility and fan base that makes this a great place for our partnership with the Angels. We very much appreciate our relationship.”
