The Martinez Clippers were a professional baseball team based in Martinez, California, United States, as members of the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs, an independent professional baseball circuit not affiliated with Major League Baseball. The team was named for New York Yankee Joe DiMaggio, who was nicknamed "The Yankee Clipper" and was born in Martinez.[1]

History[edit]

On February 8, 2018, the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs announced the additions of the Napa Silverados and Martinez Clippers for the upcoming summer season.[2]

On April 22, 2018, the Clippers signed their first pitcher, Zach Compton.[3] The team participated in its first draft the next day.[4]

In December 2018, Clippers' owners Jeff and Paulette Carpoff were reported to be in charge of a Ponzi scheme based around their primary company DC Solar Inc. and were being investigated by the FBI.[5] In response, the city of Martinez canceled the Clippers' lease at the stadium.[6] The league commissioner has stated that they hope to keep the Clippers as members of the league, but under new ownership.
