Angels Spring Training


The Rolling O Lab – West rig headed to Arizona for Spring Training with the Cactus League, first stop: the home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Tempe’s Diablo Stadium. The Anaheim Angels bring out a sea of red for every game even in the preseason, with a beautiful sunny Arizona weekend, the parking lot filled up fast with fans not wanting to even miss one swing during pre-game batting practice.

The Rolling O Lab rig was parked just in reach of some of the sluggers, in the parking lot, down the left field line of the practice field. I’m sure there were bets made of who could be the first to hit the rig, luckily we didn’t sustain any substantial damage but we did take a couple of shoots off a bounce. As the players finished up pre-game warm ups the crowd filtered through the Rolling O Lab to check out what was going on, kids enjoyed climbing on the truck, and many got to have a quick visit and picture with some of the players that stopped by.

The weekend at Diablo Stadium was a perfect start to our journey through the Arizona Cactus League.
