Owned by trucking company executive Larry Hatfield, the Southern California Sun were charter members of the World Football League
in 1974. They played their home games at Anaheim Stadium, pre-dating the arrival of the Rams in Orange County by several years. The Sun posted a record of 13 wins against 7 losses in 1974, good enough for a playoff berth. However they lost to The Hawaiian
s 32-14. They returned the following year as members of the "new" WFL, and went under with the rest of the league after 11 games.
