This Pacific Coast League team is a hometown favorite. The Rainiers played ball in The Emerald City from 1919-1976.

Originally sporting a red "S" on their caps, the team transitioned to the classic "R" after they were bought out by a local brewing company (the "R" is from the local brewery's logo), and they continued to use variations of the "R" throughout their existence.

Formerly known as the Indians, the team was an original charter member of the PCL in 1903. During their time in the league, the Rainiers would take home seven PCL pennants and help develop countless MLB All-Stars including Hall-of-Famer Bob Lemon. Lemon played a legendary career as a right hand pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.
