1 Champion determined by championship series.
2 Due to wartime (World War I) travel restrictions, the 1918 season was suspended on July 14. Los Angeles played a post-season series against Vernon to win that season’s championship.
3 For financial reasons, the Governor's Cup Playoffs for 1950, 1952, and 1953 were cancelled. The league declared that season’s champion.
Wrigley Field was located in South Los Angeles at the intersection of 42nd Place and Avalon Boulevard. The ball park was named for chewing-gum magnate William K. Wrigley, Jr., who owned the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific Coast League. Wrigley purchased the Angels in 1921, for the huge sum of $150,000. He then began construction on a stadium for the Angels in 1924. The park opened on September 29, 1925. It was designed to resemble Wrigley Field in Chicago but with a decidedly Southern California look. The last game at the park was on October 1, 1961, and it was demolished in 1966. The site is now a public park and recreation center, a community mental health center and a senior citizens' center.
