WCL Unveils New Era Caps Partnership

The West Coast League announced that New Era will serve as the league's preferred hat throughout the 2019 season. 

"As our league continues to evolve," said WCL Commissioner Rob Neyer, "it's only natural that we'll enjoy relationships with phenomenal brands like New Era. Beginning this summer, I fully expect to see baseball fans all around the U.S. and Canada wearing our teams' snazzy New Era caps."

As part of the agreement, nine WCL teams will wear New Era hats on the field during all league games, while the other three teams will feature exclusively designed New Era hats for sale to the public.

"New Era is synonymous with official baseball hats around the globe," said Alan Miller, owner of the Portland Pickles. "We are excited about building this relationship, and create the best-looking hats for our players and fans."

"We are excited to have all of our clubs representing the best hat in the game. When baseball fans think 'hats,' they immediately think of New Era," said Zachary Fraser, of Pacific Baseball Ventures (Yakima Valley Pippins, Walla Walla Sweets). "Our teams have enjoyed a long history with the company, and with so many great brands in the WCL now, it'll be great to see New Era so well represented, both on the field and with the fans in our ballparks."

The 2019 WCL season gets underway on June 4, with all 12 teams in action to begin the campaign.

PORTLAND, Ore. (May 15th, 2019) — The Portland Pickles are very excited to announce baseball’s first ever sponsorship with a CBD brand. The sponsorship with Lazarus Naturals, a CBD brand headquartered in Portland, will begin in the 2019 season.

“This is a great opportunity to unite the American traditions of hemp and baseball, ushering in a new vision for the modern sporting world,” said Dylan Summers, Chief Marketing Officer, Lazarus Naturals.

Formed in 2014, Lazarus Naturals has been growing and harvesting hemp on their farms in Central Oregon, delivering high-quality CBD products that are accessible to everyone, especially those who need them most.

“We are incredibly excited to be working with Lazarus Naturals,” said Alan Miller, Pickles owner and operating partner. “When we heard their vision of supporting the veteran community, we knew this would be a tremendous fit with our fans.”

The partnership includes the launch of “Lazarus Naturals Veterans at the Park Program,” where fans can submit themselves or a veteran they know for a chance to win five tickets to sit in Lazarus Naturals Patriot Box. Visit here to find out more.

The two-year partnership also includes Lazarus Naturals as the presenting sponsor for the Rockin’ the Walk Summer Concert Series (A free concert series every Friday Night before games showcasing local recording artists) in addition to The Lazarus Naturals Patriot Box, exclusive to veterans.

Interested in trying their products? Selected products will be sold at every home game.

Portland Pickles Announce Winner Of Future Baseball Night Uniform Contest

In collaboration with Uni Watch, the Portland Pickles are excited to announce that the winning uniform design for the 2050 baseball contest is “Dillon in Orbit” by Kevin McLaughlin, which will be worn by the Pickles during the evening July 4th game.

Explanation from the designer: Front: Dillion in orbit! The 2050s will give new meaning to the term “launch angle.”  The floating marker is measuring the distance, ala, The Fence, and by 2050 we’ve finally switched to the metric system. The “Hit Moon, Win Suit” is an homage to the billboard in Ebbets Field that Abe Stark had that read “Hit Sign, Win Suit.”Back:  Walker Stadium has gotten a dome!  With a hatch!  Launch angle!  It’s all about launch angle! (Sigh). Side:  Since it’s the 35 anniversary of the Pickles in 2050, I made a commemorative patch.

So, what’s the deal with the new uniforms you may ask? On July 4th, the Pickles will take on the Corvallis Knights for a special exhibition.

During the off-season, Dillon traveled to the year 2050 and purchased a copy of the current MLB rulebook. Upon his return to our time in 2019, Dillon shared the seven major rule changes with both teams, and for one night only, the Pickles and Knights will play by a new set of future rules. It wouldn’t be futuristic baseball without a future uniform!

The Pickles received so many amazing uniform submissions, and although they won’t be on the field this time, we want to share our favorite runner-ups that carried heavy competition.

Runner-Up: Colin Eadie

Explanation from the designer: “Concept was to go into the near future where humans and aliens live and love baseball together. Alien typography is featured on the sleeves. A neon line silhouette hugs the frame. The future of pinstripes are waves. And last but not least, stackable numbering.”

Runner-Up: Jason Von Stein

Explanation from the designer: “My idea is to have the jersey depict a Pickle in a pickle!” [This one may not be particularly futuristic, but I love the concept.”
