Owners

  • Gene Autry (1960–1998) was persuaded by baseball executives at the time to take ownership of the expansion team, rather than just the broadcast rights.[1]
  • Jackie Autry (1998–1999) became legal owner of the team following her husband Gene Autry's death.[2]
  • The Walt Disney Company (1999–2003) effectively took control of the Angels in 1996, when it was able to gain enough support on the board to hire Tony Tavares as team president. Gene Autry remained as chairman until his death in 1998.[3]
  • Arturo Moreno (2003–present) made history on May 15, 2003, by becoming the first Mexican American and the first Latin American to own a major sports team in the United States when he purchased the Angels from the Walt Disney Company.[4]

General managers

Fred Haney was the first general manager of the Angels (1960–68).
Tony Reagins served as the general manager of the Angels from 2007 to 2011.
