Fan Favorites Awards: Round 4

We’ve made it to the FINAL Round of the Angels Fan Favorites Awards! Here’s the information you need to know before we get cracking:

  • Before you vote for today’s round of polls, go vote for Round 3, Round 2 and Round 1 if you haven’t already.
  • All polls will close on Saturday, November 1.
  • Don’t forget to use #AngelsFanFaves when posting about the awards on Twitter. We’re looking out to see who is keeping up the conversation. SPREAD THE WORD!
  • Lastly, have fun!

Now, let’s make this round the best round!

We’ll start things off with Best in the Bullpen. Let’s not forget that combined eight-man shutout against the A’s this season…


After voting for the Best Player Twitter Account, it’s time to decide who should receive the award for being the best Instagrammer on the team.


Next, we have the “Halo Hope for 2015.” Whether they’re coming off injuries, were recently acquired to supplement the farm system or showed an unexpected spark this year that could potentially help the team next season, it’s all up for your interpretation. Which player do you believe will carry the most “hope” into the 2015 season?


Now you’ll be voting for the player that you think has the most Angels Spirit. Whether you’ve seen them on the field, in an interview or at an autograph signing, this player always has a smile on, is excited to congratulate their teammates, interacts with fans as much as possible and has an overall recognizable love for the game. This is another category that is up for your interpretation.


As the Angels Fan Favorites Awards come to an end, we would like to get your input on next year’s awards. Yes it is a little early to be thinking about a year from now, but we want to be prepared to make this bigger and better! The last category is completely open-ended. We would like to know if we should stick with the name “Fan Favorites Awards” or replace it with a new title. For example, this could mean naming the awards after a former or current player. Please try to keep your suggestions in the poll appropriate. We would greatly appreciate it! Let the creativity fly.


All polls (Rounds 1-4) will close this Saturday. Look out for the results on Monday, November 3 right here on The Halo Way. Thanks for voting!

Next, we have one of our unconventional categories: Best Smile! Whose pearly whites should take home the prize? Here are some photos of our nominees for reference.



It’s time to turn up the tunes and vote for the player who had the Best Walk-up Song this season. Let’s jam:


Whether you watched Angels games sitting in front of the TV with the comforts of home surrounding you, out at a restaurant or at a stadium with 30,000+ of your closest friends, we’re certain that sometimes it was impossible to contain the exhilaration of a great play or a victory. There were a lot of great moments this season. Between the options below, which one was the Most Exciting Game to Watch?


Thanks for voting! We’ll see you next week with some brand new categories.

Fan Favorites Awards: Round One

Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls! We are excited to announce that the first round of polls have opened for the Angels’ First Official Fan Favorites Awards!

These fan choice awards will highlight superlatives of the Angels’ 2014 season through categories like Favorite Player, Most Outstanding Pitcher, Best New Food Item at Angel Stadium, etc. We will be releasing a new batch of categories on the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 23
  • Tuesday, October 28
  • Thursday, October 30

All polls will close on Saturday, November 1 and the results will be posted right here on The Halo Way on Monday, November 3.

As you will notice, we tried our best to limit the categories to a small number of choices for easy voting.

Stir up the hype of the awards by posting in the comments section below or by Tweeting with the hashtag #AngelsFanFaves. Keep up the conversation and you may be the one rewarded!

Without further ado, LET THE VOTING BEGIN!

Our first category is 2014 Fan Favorite Rookie. We’ve all seen what these young guns can do, from Shoemaker’s dominant innings, to Navarro’s exciting, first career walk-off.

Now, you’ll be voting on the Best Promotional Giveaway at Angel Stadium this season. We attempted to narrow down the choices to the most popular items, but feel free to vote for a 2014 item that is not currently on the ballot.

This poll is for the best catch of the season. Both the players and our fans made some incredible grabs, so first check out the nominees and then cast your vote below.

Calhoun in Boston

Richards vs. Dodgers

Boesch’s Diving Catch

Fan Foul Ball Catch

Trout’s No Look Catch

Next, we have Fan Favorite Player (basically our unofficial version of MVP). Note: Please steer away from voting for Angels pitchers and rookies, due to the fact that there are separate categories to vote on for those players!

Finally, it’s time to vote for your favorite section to sit in at The Big A! Were you part of the energy-packed Trout Farm or did you enjoy the bird’s-eye-view of the field in the Upper Viewing sections?

BREAKING: Angels Fan Favorites Awards are Coming Soon!


It’s true. We all wish the Angels’ 2014 postseason was filled with more champagne showers and more days for it to be socially acceptable to rock a fake Shoemaker beard in public. However, there’s no reason why we all can’t have a little fun and show our Angels spirit!

We’re starting a new tradition: The Angels Fan Favorites Awards! These fan choice awards will highlight the finest achievements and whims that contributed to the exciting season for your 2014 American League West Division Champions. Be prepared to tackle decisions on your Fan Favorite Rookie and Most Outstanding Pitcher. Some eccentric categories like Best Walk-up Song and Best New Food Item at The Big A will also be up for discussion!

There will be 3 rounds of polls. The first round of categories will be released next Tuesday, October 21st. Check back with us HERE on The Halo Way that day to begin voting. Use the hashtag #AngelsFanFaves whenever you post about the awards on Twitter… there might be something special in store for those participants that do!

While we finish gathering the nominees, let us know if there’s a certain Angels-related category that you wish to see in the awards (Comment below with your ideas). Remember, the voting will be in your hands.
