WIL League Meet Set For Tri-Cities

Vancouver Plays Here April 10th
SALEM, Ore., Nov. 9—Western International Baseball league directors voted last night to hold their next meeting, in January, for the election of officers, in the Tri-Cities. They also voted to keep the same admission prices during the 1950 season.
They announced that the league would open April 10, with Tacoma playing at Salem, Yakima at Wenatchee, Vancouver at Tri-Cities, and Victoria at Spokane.
The season will close Sept. 10, and each team will play about 350 games.
The directors cancelled the post-season playoffs, and adopted the Spalding Baseball as the official league ball.
They made a new rule that no club can hire more than 10 players who have been in professional baseball for three or more years.
Tacoma follows Vancouver into the Tri-Cities baseball park. After that the club takes to the road and moves into Yakima to open that city's first home game.
Arne Sanborn, station manager of radio station KPKW, said today that KPKW will broadcast all the Tri-Cities baseball games both home and away.
