The West Coast League of baseball that the Victoria HarbourCats compete underwent an expansion in 2017, with the addition of the Port Angeles Lefties. For the 2019 season, the league has added another team, see media release below:
The West Coast League, together with Clark County and the cities of Ridgefield, Vancouver, Camas, Battle Ground, Washougal, and La Center, announced this afternoon the addition of a West Coast League expansion membership in the Clark County market, to begin play in the spring of 2019. The new team’s home facility will be the Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex (RORC), currently under construction and scheduled for completion in September 2018 (see rendering above).
“As a league, we’re thrilled with this expansion,” said WCL Commissioner Rob Neyer. “The new stadium is a first-class facility in the heart of our footprint, in a community with deep grass-roots passion for baseball.”
It is anticipated that the yet-unnamed team will play in the League’s Southern Division, together with Bend, Corvallis, Cowlitz, Portland, and Walla Walla.
