Pacific International League
Founded in 1992, the Pacific International League (PIL) is a Semi-Professional and Summer Collegiate Baseball League in the Pacific Northwest. Sanctioned by the National Baseball Congress (NBC), most PIL players are NCAA eligible and are unpaid in order to maintain their eligibility. The PIL is different from many other summer collegiate baseball leagues in that the league also allows former professionals and college graduates to participate which makes it a semi-professional league.
The league was formed by a core group of franchises from the previous Northwest Amateur Western International League. Formed and federally recognized as a Tax Free Corporation, the PIL has taken great pains to insure that a community orientated philosophy is the guiding objective. Alongside the goal of establishing the “best” amateur league in North America, an equal effort is placed on returning to our communities, and their youth, some of the support that we have received over the years. Current teams place a strong emphasis on the amateur athletes helping young players develop and in the process, realize their individual goals The players posses a wide variety of experience. Top college athletes find themselves competing with former professional players.
