The Los Angeles Angels will be holding a fan appreciation month through September, officials announced Tuesday.

Since fans aren’t allowed in Major League baseball stadiums across the country because of the coronavirus pandemic, the fan appreciation program will be held virtually on the Angels website as a way to say thank you to their fans.
