Eight of the 11 WCL cities have had professional minor league baseball in the past. As each team comes to town I’ll try and remember to make mention of those teams.
The team that is here tonight got they name from the Klamath Falls Gems who played four seasons from 1948 to 1951. They were members of the Class D Far West league and they played in Kiger Stadium, the same field the current Gems squad uses. From the Kiger Stadium website. “Construction began in late 1947 at the Crest Street site of Kiger Stadium, with a goal of opening in Spring 1948 for the Class D Klamath Falls Gems, the Far West League farm team of the Philadelphia Phillies. The opening, and the original Gems, were a huge success, as the team led the league in attendance in three of the four years they were in the League, and won the Far West League's final Championship before the league folded after the 1951 season.”
