The San Francisco Mission Reds played in the Pacific Coast League from 1926 to 1937. A group of San Francisco businessmen led by Herbert Fleishhacker purchased the L.A. Tigers, moved the team to San Francisco for the 1926 season, and called the team the Mission Reds. The team played home games at Recreation Park but were unable to establish a fan base during their 12-year stay in San Francisco, nor was the team able to replace the Oakland Oaks as the Seals' main rival. To most San Francisco baseball fans, the Missions were the team to watch only when the Seals were on the road.
