The Corvallis Knights captured their third straight WCL title in 2021, finishing 37-11 and earning honors as Perfect Game’s Summer Collegiate Team of the Year. The Knights also host the MVP of the league in incoming freshman Travis Bazzana, who also led the league in hitting. In addition to those accolades, the Team of the Year also has the top-two prospects in the West Coast League, and impressive honor in and of itself. 

Eric Chavarria of the Bellingham Bells, and Lewis-Clark State, earned Pitcher of the Year honors following his league-best ERA of 1.83. The West Coast League showed that it was back in 2021, with Alberta now being involved in the states and territories it represents. There are 317 alumni of the league playing affiliated ball with, perhaps, the most famous name being 2019 No. 1 overall pick Adley Rutschman
