Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame

Every PCL Hall of Fame Member in Alphabetical Order

The Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame was created in 1942 by the Helms Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles. The foundation selected players, managers and executives who they felt best contributed to the ideals of the Pacific Coast League (PCL).

In the late 1950s, the PCL Hall of Fame went dormant for two reasons. The first was the westward moves of the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants and the second was the death of Paul Helms. Without its main supporter and its two biggest markets, including the home of the hall itself, the Hall of Fame was largely forgotten.

In 2003, with the Pacific Coast League celebrating its 100th season, it was decided it would be the right time to bring back the Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame. its first new induction in 2003 twenty pre-1957 inductees were elected. Future elections have been open to players from both before and after the 1957 season.

"I'm excited. I'm honored. When you're a manager, you don't throw, you don't hit. What I achieved became a reality because of my players. They should get the credit." - Tommy Lasorda (Amanda Branam, 04/15/2006, 'Lasorda inducted to PCL Hall of Fame', Source )
