Game 1, April 8, 1924

The 1924 campaign for the Pacific Coast League crown started for the Seattle Indians at Washington Park in Los Angeles against the Angels. The Indians had been in Los Angeles to complete spring training. Washington Park was the home for the Angels until they moved to LA's Wrigley Field in 1925. The field sat next to Chutes Park, an amusement park on Main between Washington and 21rst. The game was described in the Wednesday, April 9, 1924, edition of the Seattle Daily Times. For fans, the game was displayed 'live' on an automatic 'player' outside of the Times' offices in Seattle's Times Square (facing 5th Avenue at Stewart).
