For 2 decades Dugdale Park was home to all of Seattle's Professional Baseball, playing in both the Pacific Coast League and the Northwestern League throughout much of that time. The Pacific Coast League was rapidly gaining respect as one of the top league's in the country, nearly on par with the American and National Leagues. Today of course the PCL serves as one of the top 2 Triple-A level organizations of the Minor League system. The Northwestern League exists today as well as a Short-Season Single-A league in the Pacific Northwest, but this earlier version of the NWL wasn't necessarily related to today's league. Back in the days of Dugdale Park, the Northwestern League was ranked at "Class B" making it nearly that of "Double-A" during that time.
