Burlington Royals extend PDC with Royals to 2020

The Burlington Royals have extended their player development contract with the Royals to 2020.  I still have the personal opinion that the Royals should consider only having one team between the Appalachian League and Pioneer League.  The Idaho Falls contract ends after this season, but they haven’t thought the same way as me in the past, so we’ll see what happens.

Hartford Yard Goats extend PDC with Rockies to 2018

The Hartford Yard Goats have extended their player development contract with the Rockies to 2018.  The Yard Goats are still working on having their stadium finished and their opening day is going to be delayed by about two months.  Despite that, I’m sure it will be a very nice facility and it looks like the Rockies would like to stay there instead of fighting for a team closer to home in the Texas League.
