Moreno also addressed the failed attempts to reach a development deal with the city of Anaheim regarding Angel Stadium


In 2022, the Angels had a plan to purchase the ballpark from the city in exchange for the right to develop the surrounding area. The agreement fell through when Anaheim mayor Harry Sidhu became embroiled in a corruption scandal.

Now, Moreno said there are no current talks about reviving that deal, with no expectation that it would be revisited.

“Right now I’d say no,” Moreno said. “I don’t like the word never. Right now I don’t believe (Anaheim officials) have an appetite for it.”

Anaheim Mayor Ashleigh Aitken said in response to Moreno’s comments that the city is willing to discuss a new stadium deal.

“We’re open to looking at the future of baseball and welcome a fresh start in crafting a proposal that is good for Anaheim and our residents. I’m all ears,” Aitken said in a statement. “We know what works, and we’ve seen what didn’t. We welcome a fair proposal. As a city, we’re committed to building on decades of baseball in Anaheim for generations to come.”
