The first professional baseball teams in Yakima played in the Pacific Cost International League in 1920 and 1921. The team captured the PCIL title in 1921.

Following that championship, Yakima said farewell to professional baseball until 1937. The Yakima Pippens, named after a local apple variety, joined the Western International League in '37. They represented the city from 1937-41 and from 1946-54. During that time, Yakima claimed one league championship, (1950), and twice finished second in the league playoffs.

Yakima joined the long season Northwest League in 1955. In eleven seasons, from 1955 to 1965, Yakima claimed six NWL Championships. Four of those were under the direction of Hub Kittle. The most colorful figure in Yakima's professional baseball history, Kittle won 20 games a a pitcher for the Pippens in 1939. As the field manager and general manager of the Bears, he did everything from selling to advertising to signing players. In 1966 , when the NWL went to a short-season league, Kittle obtained a working agreement with Atlanta. The team was called the Yakima Braves that season. The franchise moved out of town following that season, beginning a stretch of 23 years without professional baseball.

In the spring of 1990, D.G. Elmore moved his Salem Dodgers to Yakima. The team adopted the name Bears, and maintained its affiliation with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Today, the Yakima Bears are affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
