Baseball didn't exactly zoom right out to the west coast once it became a major sport. For decades, westward expansion to Major League Baseball meant maybe putting a new team in Kansas City. The barriers of Major League Baseball were pretty well set in stone until the 50's, and until then, there were no baseball teams either south of Washington or west of Saint Louis.

Wiki

The Los Angeles Angels, as the team was originally known as, had its home base at the Los Angeles Wrigley Field (aka Dodger Stadium) and was founded in 1961. Mid-season 1965, the team changed its name to California Angels to establish their move to the Anaheim Stadium and to distinguish themselves as the only American League team in California.

In 1997, Walt Disney Company took over in order to attract more tourists to nearby Disneyland, they renovated the stadium and bought the team under the circumstance that both would change their names to include Anaheim.

In 2005, the new owner, Arte Moreno, wanted to attract the Los Angeles media market (second largest in the country). Therefore, he changed the name to include Los Angeles. After many protests, the name was upheld in court, making the Angels- the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

To this date, there aren't any Hall of Famers that chose to wear their Angels cap for their official picture- though many of them spent time on the Angels.
