  • 1912 Pacific Coast League

    I've discovered online for at least that year not only didn't the teams play the same amount of road and home games, and the same amount of games against each of the other teams, the didn't play the same amount of games

    Portland and Sacramento only played single games on Sundays while the other teams played doubleheaders, probably at least in Portland's case because of their relative geographic isolation for the times. Sunday was always getaway day, at least for the road teams. Except for holidays, Mondays were the travel days

    """"Each team plays between 199 and 212 games. Teams play each other between 39 and 46 times during the season.

    Season starts on April 2 and ends on October 27. Double-headers on holidays - Memorial Day (5/30), Independence Day (7/4), Labor Day (9/2), Admission Day (9/9 - California), and Columbus Day (10/12) - and on most Sundays. Weekday games start at 3:00. Weekend games start at 1:00. Double-header games start at noon and 3:00.

    Even by Pacific Coast League standards, this is a long schedule - nearly seven months. The wide discrepancy in games played is the result of Portland and Sacramento playing only single games at home on Sundays - all other teams play double-headers. The breakdown (away/home) is as follows:

    Los Angeles - 99/113 = 212
    Oakland - 103/108 = 211
    Portland - 106/93 = 199
    Sacramento - 105/94 = 199
    San Francisco - 103/109 = 212
    Vernon - 106/105 = 211 """""
