West Coast Negro Baseball League
The West Coast Negro Baseball League only operated for part of the 1946 season. Its objective was for teams composed of black ballplayers to play games in stadiums used by teams in the Pacific Coast League while their regular occupants were playing on the road. The league comprised six teams located in Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA, Oakland, CA, Los Angeles, CA and San Diego, CA. It folded in July of its only year of operation. The Oakland Larks were the unofficial league champions, having gone 14-3 before the circuit folded.
