Donors must be at least 17 years old and may give blood only once every 56 days. They should be prepared to spend 45 minutes or so at the stadium on the day they donate.

Complete the online form with a valid email address and submit it. Please check back again for additional dates, which are added as current donation days fill up.

After donating blood, participants can walk to the ticket booth and exchange their vouchers for game tickets. The Angels have set aside certain sections from which to choose seats. The box office is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday when the Angels are out of town or not playing, and until the seventh inning on game days.
