EUGENE. Ore. – As minor-league baseball cities go, a young man could do much worse than this small city at the southern end of the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
Eugene is bike-friendly, picturesque, it’s a college town with good places to eat and there are plenty of green spaces. College sports rule here, home of the Oregon Ducks, but the Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League get to play in the Ducks’ still-new baseball stadium, PK Park, across the river from campus.
As nice as a warm summer night in the Pacific Northwest feels, Eugene, for all of its charm, is still a long way from home for the nine Emeralds from Latin America. They represent Colombia, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
