The East Bay Lumberjacks are an independent professional baseball team, based out of Oakland, California. The team currently compete in the San Francisco Money Baseball League.

History[edit]

The Lumberjacks were members of the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs in 2013, playing their home games at Laney College in Oakland. They were the only franchise in the league to share a location with a Major League Baseball club, the Oakland Athletics, though they are not affiliated with either MLB or Minor League Baseball.

After a 7–29 Pacific Association season,[1] The team did not return for the 2014 season, and were replaced in the league by the Pittsburg Mettle.

In Winter 2014 the Lumberjacks joined the four-team San Francisco Money League, playing a schedule from November to February. Finishing 7-1 in the regular season the Lumberjacks defeated Castro Valley Braves in a best-of 3 championship series.[2]
