The baseball history of the Stockton, tells us that the game at first came to the town in the 1860s. Stockton began to field a team in an earlier incarnation of the California League till the 1880s.
The Stockton team had won the California League pennant with a record of 41-12 in the year of 1888. That same team had also gained a lot of fame through a famous baseball poem by Ernest Thayer. The Stockton Flyers were established as a charter member of the California League in 1941. The league had to stop its functions in June, 1942 due to World War II.
The Ports got a chance to win the California League pennant in 1947, for a second time. After going 24-18 playing through June 4, they went on a 26-game winning streak and took first place, never to relinquish again in that season. The win streak formed by the Port, is the longest in professional baseball and is still a California League record.
The Ports finished made a history by making a record of 95-45 and sixteen games ahead of the two teams tied for second place, in that season. The baseball historians Bill Weiss and Marshall Wright have placed the 1947 Ports at 98 position in one of the one hundred best Minor League teams of all times.
The team was owned by Stockton local Carl W. Thompson, and there is a possibility that the Ports would disband after the 1972 season, coming back as the affiliates of the Seattle Mariners in 1978. The poem by Ernest Thayer poem pays the homage to the Ports.
