PCL baseball is one such game a bit lower in the hierarchy of the games when compared to the MLB. But, when has the hierarchy stopped the players or fans from having the best times of their lives? If you are a Pacific Coast League fan, you must get your tickets ready! Scroll down below to find them and book them ASAP.
PCL goes all the way back to the 50s and 60s when it enjoyed the glory of hosting players like Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. In the early part of the twentieth century, it was one of the highly praised rec leagues. While it was not recognized as a preeminent league, the level of competition was quite impressive.
The modernization era of the PCL started in 1958, with both the advent of big-league clubs on the west coast and the provision of broadcasting pro baseball games. Each team drafted Player Development Contracts into becoming farm teams for MLB clubs.
Today, the league is just a notch below the Triple-A recognition of MiLB and continues to give the best pitchers to the parent MLB teams.
The Pacific Champion League pitchers face the International League champion in the Triple-A National Championship Game. A single game is staged annually to establish an overall Triple-A baseball champion. Their players are also known to play Junior World League and Triple-A League World.
Watching these teams play tournaments domestically across different states is a feast for the eyes. Not only these young and energetic players can amp up your adrenaline level, but the top-notch display of pitching on the field is a must-watch. Grab a ticket and become a part of the PCL games this season.
