TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwire - Mar 4, 2013) - The smell of the grass, the breeze whipping in from center field, and the beautiful cacti surrounding the field -- it's time again for Cactus League spring training in Arizona. And for fans of the Anaheim Angels Baseball Club, there is no better place to rest between games than the Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes -- just ask the Angels themselves.
On Thursday, February 14, 2013, the Angels hosted a media event at this Phoenix airport hotel featuring outfielders Josh Hamilton and 2012 AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout, and first baseman Albert Pujols. The stars were on hand to discuss spring training as well as the team's outlook for the 2013 season.
