News from Salem is interesting. Long term lease, so they’re not giving up, they have a plan... but it won’t be the Pioneer League (travel to Colorado isn’t exactly feasible) and it won’t be the summer collegiate West Coast League (owners of the Volcanoes used to own the Portland Pickles, now in the WCL).
Creating something like a 3-team league that plays solely in Bakersfield?
Draw some WCL teams into an independent Northwest league? That seems least likely, as the WCL pretty much has a monopoly on former NWL ballparks, and it’s generally a stable league.
