League: Pacific Coast League
History: By 1956, the Pacific Coast League was officially classified as "Open", with a plan in place to be eventually certified as a major league. However rumblings about MLB clubs moving West were already being heard, and in two years the Dodgers and Giants would dash the dreams of the PCL to be a major league by taking their two largest territories. The Padres continued on in the AAA PCL until a National League expansion franchise of the same name was granted for the 1969 season. The PCL Padres played in Lane Field, on San Diego's waterfront.
