Pacific Northwest League

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The first Pacific Northwest League, the first professional baseball league ever in the region, was founded in 1890 and lasted until folding in the second half of the 1892 season because of a nationwide economic depression (known as the "Panic of 1893"). The league was revived briefly in 1896, but only lasted until mid-June. The 1896 version was also known as the New Pacific League.

The third Pacific Northwest League began play in 1901 as a four-team league, and was a six-team Class B circuit in 1902 when the minors were first classified. The next season it expanded with teams in Los Angeles and San Francisco and was renamed the Pacific National League.
