West Coast clubs set to continue success
Placeholder Image
After the 1994 strike in Major League Baseball, only one West Coast team made it to the World Series in the years leading up the turn of the century. The San Diego Padres were the rare gem for fans living along the Pacific, climbing their way to the championship game in 1998 against the New York Yankees. San Diego featured six All-Stars that year -- pitchers Andy Ashby, Kevin Brown, and Trevor Hoffman, and outfielders Tony Gwynn and Greg Vaughn -- but ultimately got swept by the Bronx Bombers in four games.
