ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Anaheim officials have extended the stay of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the city by at least three years and hope to use the time to strike new deals to keep the team in place even longer.
The City Council voted Tuesday 4-1 to delay the Angels' option to leave the city from 2016 to 2019, allowing time for negotiations that city officials hope could keep the team in the Orange County city until 2057.
The team hasn't threatened a move, but owner Arte Moreno has discussed building a stadium elsewhere in Southern California.
The vote also opens the door to talks with the Angels over dropping Anaheim from the team's name.
The addition of Los Angeles to the name was the source of a heated court battle.
