WCL Introduces Game of the Week
May 31, 2018 - West Coast League (WCL) News Release
The first Game of the Week broadcast will feature Yakima Valley at Victoria on Thursday, June 7.
Beginning this season, most of the West Coast League's member teams are airing their home games over online streaming video. As part of the league's move to video broadcasting, fans can now connect with the West Coast League throughout the season unlike ever before with a new weekly streaming video Game of the Week broadcast.
Starting on June 7, the WCL Game of the Week will be streamed every Thursday, available for free at westcoastleague.com.
"This is an exciting new step for our league. The WCL Game of the Week is designed to further promote the league, allowing fans to see our outstanding teams and players in some of North America's most stunning venues for baseball," said WCL Commissioner Rob Neyer.
Each team will be featured at least once during the season on a WCL Game of the Week broadcast. In addition to the WCL Game of the Week, most WCL teams are also offering a complete slate of home video broadcasts.
