Anaheim Sports - History

History

Disney purchased a National Hockey League expansion franchise in December 1992 for Anaheim. The team was named Mighty Ducks after a Disney movie, The Mighty Ducks.

In May 1995, DSE agreed to purchase 25% of the California Angels from Gene Autry with an option to purchase the remaining ownership. The company then agreed to a new lease with the city of Anaheim, in which it agreed to add the city's name to the name of the baseball club in return for full management of Anaheim Stadium and an increased share of the stadium's revenues. DSE took operational control of the Angels in May 1996 which was renamed the Anaheim Angels. In December 1996, Disney Sports Enterprises, Inc. was renamed to Anaheim Sports, Inc. for tax purposes and to align with the teams' names.

In May 2003, the company sold the Angels to advertising magnate Arte Moreno. In 2005, it agreed to sell the Mighty Ducks to Broadcom co-founder and billionaire Henry Samueli. It also owned the Disney Ice facility in downtown Anaheim, which was also be sold to Samueli, and renamed Anaheim Ice. After the selling of the Disney Ice facility, Anaheim Sports, Inc. was dissolved.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Universal history is the history of a few metaphors.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    Every generation rewrites the past. In easy times history is more or less of an ornamental art, but in times of danger we are driven to the written record by a pressing need to find answers to the riddles of today.... In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under men’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present and get us past that idiot delusion of the exceptional Now that blocks good thinking.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    So in accepting the leading of the sentiments, it is not what we believe concerning the immortality of the soul, or the like, but the universal impulse to believe, that is the material circumstance, and is the principal fact in this history of the globe.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
