The front features the Angels’ official 50th Anniversary logo; the back bears the names of all 853 Angels players, coaches and managers who have donned the uniform since the club’s founding in 1961.
This is the second year of Nitto’s sponsorship, and the program will include two other promotional giveaways during the 2011 season.
Nitto’s name will also appear in the Angels magazine and on the scoreboard behind home plate.
“Nitto Tire is thrilled to be a proud sponsor of Angels baseball during this golden anniversary season,” says marketing representative Robin Howland.
“The Angels have provided countless memories to generations of Southern Californians. We hope this T- shirt and the names that adorn it will hold a special place in the hearts of all Angels fans,” Howland adds, noting that the company is based in the nearby town of Cypress.
The Angels joined the Major League as an expansion team in 1961 with “Singing Cowboy” Gene Autry as the club’s owner.
From the team’s original home at Wrigley Field in South L.A. to the move to Chavez Ravine and then to Anaheim, the Halos clinched eight American League Western Division championships, hosted the All-Star game three times and won the World Series in 2002.
