Los Angeles, CA

From BR Bullpen

Los Angeles, or L.A. is the second largest city in the United States, lying at a center of a huge metropolitan area on the Pacific Ocean coast of southern California. The city itself is spread out geographically and a number of its neighborhoods, including Hollywood, Venice and Vernon have hosted their own baseball teams, and in many cases, persons who were born or died there are listed under those names. See for example: Encino, CA, Harbor City, CA, Mission Hills, CA, North Hollywood, CA, Northridge, CA, Pacific Palisades, CA, Panorama City, CA, Reseda, CA, San Pedro, CA, Sherman Oaks, CA, Sylmar, CA, Tarzana, CA, Van Nuys, CA, Wilmington, CA or Woodland Hills, CA.

The nearby cities of Anaheim, CA and Long Beach, CA, which are part of the L.A. metropolitan area, have also hosted professional teams.
