Template:MiLB yearly infobox The Template:By Portland Beavers season was the eighth in franchise history since the Template:By return to Portland, Oregon. They finished with a record of 60-84, placing them last in the Pacific Coast League Pacific North Division.

Overview

Randy Ready was the manager of the Portland Beavers and coached the Pacific Coast League All-Star team before he was hired as the Padres hitting coach. Ready was replaced by Gary Jones as manager for the Beavers.

Stadium move

After the City of Portland was awarded a new Major League Soccer franchise, the Portland Timbers, it was announced that the Beavers would have to move out of their current ball park, PGE Park, due to MLS regulations.[1]

The unnamed New Portland Ballpark has been planned for 2011 but no site has been announced. Possible plans include building the stadium in vacant spaces in Portland or an outlying city.[2] Even if the Beavers don't find a new stadium, the plan for a new MLS franchise will go forward as the Portland City Council has already voted to allow the Timbers to play at PGE Park in 2011.[2]

All-Star Game

The Portland Beavers hosted the 2009 Triple-A All-Star Game at PGE Park.[3] Festivities included Dave Winfield and Portland native Johnny Pesky throwing out the fist pitch.[3] The Beavers own Chad Huffman won the Home Run Derby and the Beavers manager Randy Ready coached the Pacific Coast League[4][5] The International League beat the Pacific Coast League 6-5.

Personnel changes

During the season, the Beavers manager Randy Ready was hired by the San Diego Padres as their hitting coach after the Padres fired their then-hitting coach Wally Joyner. Ready began the season as a top-prospect manager and even coached the Pacific Coast League in the All-Star Game.[6] He was replaced by Gary Jones who was serving as the Padres roving Minor League infield instructor.[7]
