The Angels have reached the three-million fan plateau every year since 2003, the season after their 2002 World Series championship.

Playing in the large Southern California market, coming off a 98-win season capped by a postseason appearance and headlined by superstar center fielder Mike Trout, the Angels had hoped throughout the year to surpass the three-million mark.

For much of the season, though, the Angels were not on pace to draw three million fans. But since the beginning of June, their per-game attendance has jumped by almost 5,000 fans.
