West Coast League approves expansion to Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Baseball is coming back to Yakima. The West Coast League awarded the ownership group of the Walla Walla Sweets an expansion membership in Yakima for 2014. Pacific Baseball Ventures, LLC is the ownership group.

"Part of it now is my job to start sharing the vision of our company and organization with the city. This is not a situation where we come in and say you need to embrace us. This is now our job to go out and say this is why we want to work with this community and make sure we're as good of neighbors as a business hoping to be profitable," said Zachary Fraser, vice-president of PBV.

The Sweets will remain in Walla Walla.
