History and Records

Professional baseball in Tacoma began in 1957 as a shared idea by area businessmen Ben Cheney and Clay Huntington. Following a three-year effort by these men, the San Francisco Giants agreed in the fall of 1959 to relocate their Triple-A club from Phoenix to Tacoma hinged on the city's ability to construct a new stadium in time for the beginning of the 1960 season. Over the last five decades, Cheney Stadium has been home to 6 different affiliations and tons of great baseball.

Below you will find the historical stats and records that have been set and broken throughout the years.
