As mentioned previously, from 1973-88, the California Angels were one of the best dressed teams in baseball during that span, so it's not surprising that their affiliates also looked good. The Midland Angels had uniforms patterned after their parent club and despite that the California Angels regrettably switched to button-front shirts and belted pants in 1989, the Midland Angels continued to wear real baseball uniforms, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands, the Ultimate Baseball Look through at least the 1991 season. Some of the players and coaches for the Midland Angels during that time, included Fernando Valenzuela, Joe Maddon, Tim Salmon, Devon White and Mark McLemore. Another Angels affiliate, the Palm Springs Angels, also had a similar look and the coaching staff included former San Diego Padres outfielder Gene Richards. The fans want to see the uniforms again!!!
