The Greatest Minor League A History of the Pacific Coast League, 1903-1957 (Hardcover)
|Author: Dennis Snelling|
|In 1903, a small league in California defied Organized Baseball by adding teams in Portland and Seattle to become the strongest minor league of the twentieth century. Calling itself the Pacific Coast League, this outlaw association frequently outdrew its major league counterparts and continued to challenge the authority of Organized Baseball until the majors expanded into California in 1958.|
