Pittsburg California Sports
Professional baseball is back on deck, and on Tuesday the City Council unanimously approved a contract with the City of Pecos, Calif., to build a new baseball team that will play in City Park in Pittsburg, south of downtown Pittsburgh, from June to August. The City Council approved the one-year contract for PECOS, which, according to a press release from the City Council's Office of Economic and Community Development, stipulates that the new team will be allowed to play 25 home games in the city park between June and August. The agreement says the plant will be built once a pending application is approved by the Pittsburgh City Council on Monday, August 24.
Even if the season doesn't end, we will continue to highlight the best teams, players and coaches in California. Here's a look at some of the best players, coaches and teams from recent years.
Pittsburg is a city in the western part of the state of California, just outside the San Francisco Bay Area. It borders San Diego, San Jose, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento and San Bernardino.
Pittsburgh's Railroad Avenue BART station is integrated into the existing San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system, including the Pittsburg BART stations Railroad and Avenue. The city has a high-speed train, the Bay Point Station, which is located at the intersection of Bay Boulevard and Railroad Street, just north of downtown. A proposed $3 million facility will be built on the east side of Railroad Boulevard, near the Oakland-Contra Costa County border.
Pittsburg will be the second largest city in the United States with a population of more than 1.5 million people. It is located on the western edge of the San Francisco Bay Area and is connected to Suisun Bay, which is just north of it. At the beginning of the 20th century, the first inhabitants of Pittsburgh, a small town of about 1,000 inhabitants, settled on a plot of land at the mouth of a deep water channel between the river and the port from which the original village originated. At the front of the Allegheny River, which reflects its origins as a river port and its connection to the city's waterfront.
In 1849, Rancho Los Medanos was bought and a city called New York was created on the Pacific. This small town was called Pacific New Yorker because the men who built the area, Colonel John F. Kennedy and Colonel George Washington, were all New Yorkers.
Coastal Communications owned Pittsburg AM until they sold it to the Norcal Broadcasting Corporation for $350,000 on August 1, 1968. In the same transaction, Chabin Communications Corporation acquired KKIS FM, a local radio station in San Francisco, California, and changed the call letters to "KK IS FM."
Studios for KKIS were moved to Walnut Creek, though the station remained legally licensed in Pittsburg. KATD's studios were also moved in 2000 from 1251 Monument Boulevard in Concord to 2601 Mission Street in San Francisco.
The Pecos League also signed a lease for playing ball there in late December to replace the now-defunct Clippers.
Since its inception in 2011, the Pecos League has grown from six to eleven teams playing in the Pacific Division of the Pacific Coast League of North American Football League. The Pittsburg team will be called the Anchors, who will compete in a Pacific Division, with other teams including the San Francisco Bayhawks, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and San Jose Earthquakes of San Diego. Meanwhile, San Bernardino Valley League team Santa Cruz Warriors returns to the Mountain Division. Since then, they have been swept by the Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings, Santa Clara Valley Warriors and Sacramento Riverhounds.
With the signing of former Pittsburgh high school standout D'D Polk, another new face is making an immediate impression in the Pecos League. Higgins already has an offer from Arizona State, and Polk already has offers from Cal, the team said.
The 4-star ATH candidate is one of the top WR candidates in NorCal to break out at the elite level, and it would not be surprising to see him as a factor in security and special teams. All the signs are that he will be a big threat for Pittsburgh this season. He has received interest from the D-1 and is among the top 10 wide receivers in the nation in the 2016 class, according to 247Sports.com.
On November 20, 2004, the city of Antioch proclaimed Aaron Miles Day and awarded the legend a solemn key. As a result, it could be an achievement for the 2019 season that will earn Johnson a plaque in the Pittsburgh Football Hall of Fame.
Stacy Piagno is only the third woman to win a professional baseball game since 1950, when she pitched for the Stompers. Aaron was called to the Baseball America All-America First Team as a senior at Antioch High School and played every three years as a starter for the Panthers. He also signed a four-year, $1.5 million contract with Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants.
