The Pacific Coast International League was obviously in trouble in 1921 as Seattle and Spokane had dropped out of the league leaving just Yakima, Tacoma, Victoria and Vancouver (with the Beavers taking last place and finishing 35 games out). A "rebranding" would take place yet again with the PCIL now finally becoming the Western International League, basing itself more on Canadian teams than American franchises. Two new Canadian clubs joined the league with Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton joining Tacoma (with Victoria dropping out altogether). This attempt to keep the league afloat by making it nearly all Canadian was an utter failure. The newly renamed Western International League collapsed by mid-June and this time, there was no one coming back and save it. The Western International League would go dark for 15 years taking the great Athletic Park with it.
