The Los Angeles Angels were formerly a team in the Pacific Coast League. They began play with the league's formation in 1903 and were members of the circuit until 1957. Prior to 1925, the team played at Washington Park. From 1925 to 1957, the club's home ballpark was Wrigley Field. The team won 14 league titles in their 55 year existence. Angels first baseman Steve Bilko won the PCL's Most Valuable Player Award three consecutive seasons, starting in 1955.

Three Angels clubs were selected among the greatest minor league teams of all time:
