As part of the team's 50th anniversary celebration, the team is offering the chance for fans to purchase, for $25, a piece of Angel Stadium field turf that saw game action during the 2010 season and the July All-Star game. Proceeds will benefit the Angels Baseball Foundation.

The promotion will be held Sunday, Dec. 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Dec. 13 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fans can enter through Gate 5 at the southeast corner of the park.
