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 (1960–1968) became the first General Manager of the team when tapped by owner Gene Autry. Retired in 1968.
  • Dick Walsh (1968–1971) Named successor as General Manager by Gene Autry following the retirement of Haney. Walsh was fired by Autry after the 1971 season due to the team failing to meet expectations.
  • Harry Dalton (1971–1977) was hired by Autry away from the Baltimore Orioles. Acquired pitcher Nolan Ryan from the New York Mets. After the 1977 season the Angels released Dalton from his contract.
  • Buzzie Bavasi (1977–1984) Hired by Autry, Bavasi took the team to its first two appearances in the posteason. Retired in 1984.
