The West Coast League (WCL) is a collegiate summer baseball league founded in 2005, comprising teams from Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. The WCL was previously named the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League (WCCBL),[2] but in 2008 renamed as the West Coast League. The league is designed to develop college talent, and only current college-eligible players are allowed to participate. The West Coast League has produced dozens of professional players, including a number of major leaguers. League teams are operated just like professional minor league teams. The WCL season runs from early June through the middle of August.

History[edit]

2005–2009[edit]

In 2005 the teams played 42 games. For the 2007 season, this was the first year that the WCL used divisions. They separated the league into two divisions, East and West, based on geographical location. The playoffs worked in an odd way. The top two teams in the standings at the end of the season would playoff a best 2 out of 3 in both divisions. Then, the winners of the sets would playoff in the championship series, also a best 2 out of 3. In 2009, the league expanded the schedule to 48 games, at the same time going to an unbalanced schedule. Since 2012, the West Coast League has scheduled 54 league games for each team (with games against non-league opponents not counted in standings).

2010[edit]

In 2010 the league added Longview/Kelso (Cowlitz),[10][11] Washington for the 2010 season, along with Walla Walla, Washington,[12][13] which in turn cause a balanced schedule. The Moses Lake Pirates ceased operations following the 2010 season.

2011[edit]

In 2011 the league expanded to Klamath Falls,[14] which in turn caused a 54-game unbalanced schedule. Also, in the Summer of 2011 the Wenatchee Applesox won the East Division Pennant, and the Walla Walla Sweets came in second and beat the Applesox in the Division Playoffs to go on to play the Corvallis Knights where they lost 2 games to 0. In the West Division the Corvallis Knights won the Pennant and the Bend Elks were 8 games behind them but lost 2–0 in the Divisional games.

2012[edit]

In 2012 the Wenatchee Applesox won the East Division Pennant and battled the Bellingham Bells and went on to the finals. At the same time West Division the Corvallis Knights faced and defeated the Cowlitz Black Bears and went on to face the Wenatchee Applesox, where the Wenatchee Applesox won the championship for the fifth time.

2013[edit]

In the 2013 season the league changed from an East/West division format to a North/South division format because of further league expansion, of the Victoria HarbourCats,[7] and the Medford Rogues,[7] which brought the number of teams to 11. Also, in 2013 records were set and matched. Walla Walla Sweets pitcher Sean-Luke Brija matched the league record in saves, with 13 outstanding saves in the 2013 season. It was the first year an expansion team, in their first year, made the playoffs. The Medford Rogues made the playoffs by a tie, and winning their last 3 regular season games but, they lost their Cinderella Story season to the Corvallis Knights, beating them 2 games to nothing in the South Division playoffs. Also, the other expansion team, the Canadian Victoria HarbourCats, set a single game and All-star game attendance record of 4,210 in viewing. Finally, history was made in Kitsap after the last out of the top of the ninth when Spenser Watkins threw a spectacular perfect game, the first in West Coast League history.

2014[edit]

In 2014 the Yakima Valley Pippins came on board, giving the WCL their twelfth team. Also, in the 2014 year, because of the expansion of Yakima, the WCL restructured their league format for the 4th time in its history, moving to a 3-division format, with East, West, and South Divisions.[15][16] The playoff format adopted was similar to the MLB format, with only one wild card instead of two. The teams are shown in their respective geographical division in the Team Table below.

The play-off race came down to the last 2 days of league play with a race between Bend and Wenatchee for the first WCL Wild-card spot. Bend edged Wenatchee by just 1 game, causing Wenatchee to miss the playoffs for the first time. Yakima, Bellingham, and Corvallis won their divisions and set the field for the first three-division WCL playoff. The first round playoff pairings were Bellingham vs. Yakima and Corvallis vs. Bend. Both Corvallis and Bellingham won their first 2 games and advanced to the WCL Championship series. Bellingham won both games 2 and 3 of the series, making them the 4th team to ever win the WCL Championship.

2015[edit]

In the off-season of the 2014–2015 seasons the WCL saw the most coaching changes in any of its previous years. In total 7 of the 12 Head Coaches were retired of the position or went on another career path. Also, during the off-season the WCL announced that the previous 3-man umpire rule has been removed. The reason why this occurred is because of difficult regulations.

In 2015 the West Coast League saw its fifth league champion, the Bend Elks. The year was full of upsets as the standing nearly flipped of years past expectations and rhythm of Corvallis and Wenatchee leading their respective divisions. The teams that went on to playoffs were Kelowna, Bellingham, and Bend with Corvallis making it in on the league's wild card spot. In the playoffs Bend did not lose a game to anyone beating Corvallis in the divisional series and Kelowna in the Championship game to win their first ever WCL Championship.

2016[edit]

In the off season of the 2015–2016 seasons the Medford Rogues decided to leave the WCL for the Great West League. This will shrink the south division down to three teams, and the league down to eleven teams and a balanced schedule.

Later in October 2015 the WCL announced that Klamath Falls is leaving the league and being replaced with Gresham. The move brought the WCL to 11 teams.[9]

On December 4, 2015 the Gresham Baseball Club announced that the team shall be named the Gresham GreyWolves. This was announced to an overflow crowd at Gresham's City Council Chambers.[17]

Also, in 2016 thirteen records where broken, or tied, throughout the league. The Victoria Harbourcats broke the record for the most wins by one team in a single season. They won 40 games over the two halves, breaking the previous record held by the 2011 Wenatchee Applesox who had 39 wins. Victoria also broke all three attendance records by having the highest attendance in a single game, season total, and game average. They had 60,466 total fans through the gates, averaging 2,239 a night, with a record 5,133 in one game on June 30 against the Kelowna Falcons. Other records include 4 hitters tying the sacrifice flies record by hitting 6 throughout the season. Tommy Lane tied the all time strikeout record by striking-out 59 times. Zach Draper, of the Yakima Valley Pippins, tied for the most games won and the highest winning percentage by a single pitcher by winning 8 games and not losing a single one and started a record tying 13 games. Draper also almost broke the all-time ERA by a single pitcher, with an average of 0.8 innings pitched per-team-game, with a 0.72 ERA. Josh Mitchell also won 7 games and didn't lose a single one. Sam Hellinger, of the Bellingham Bells, tied for the most saves by saving 13 games in the season. The Walla Walla Sweets broke two records by stealing 56 bases and by striking out 471 batters. Also, the Wenatchee Applesox hit a record 19 triples.

In the new Split-Season schedule, the Victoria Harbourcats won the first half championship thanks to their phenomenal 19 game winning streak and tied for the second half with the Bellingham Bells, with the Bells holding the tie breaker by virtue of winning the season series, sending both of them to the playoffs. In the South, the first half was won by the Corvallis Knights, while the Second half was won by the Yakima Valley Pippins, holding off a late charge from first year Grehsam. Both Corvallis and Bellingham swept the division en route to setting up a rematch of the 2014 WCL Championship Series. The 2016 edition of the WCLCS saw Corvallis win a thrilling game 3 thanks to a historic 7th inning rally to overcome the Bells early lead, to win, 6–4.
