We know the Pacific Coast League today as being a Triple-A farm system for Major League Baseball. The "best of the best" Minor Leaguers make their way to the PCL (or International League), to make their final preparations before being called up to the Majors. It wasn't always this way however. From the 1880's until 1958, there were no Major League Baseball teams further than the banks of the mighty Mississippi. St. Louis's Sportsman's Park (with its Cardinals and Browns), was the western-most MLB stadium in the United States. While there was no MLB on the West Coast until nearly 1960... what they did have was the grand "Pacific Coast League" with its stunning baseball parks that represented the highest level of professional play on the west coast... from San Diego north to Vancouver British Columbia.
