The Tacoma Tigers were members of the Pacific Coast League in 1904-05. The Tigers later were members of the Pacific Coast International League in 1918, the 1919 Northwest International League, the Pacific Coast International League again in '20-'21 and the Western International League in 1922 and again from 1937-1951, with a break from 43-45 due to World War II.

The name was revived in 1980 when the Tacoma Tugs, a Cleveland Indians farm club in the Pacific Coast League, became the Tigers. The next year the team affiliated with the Oakland Athletics, a combination that lasted 14 seasons. After the 1994 season, the Tigers became an affiliate of the Seattle Mariners and became known as the Tacoma Rainiers.
