Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros extended its Player Development Contract with the Oklahoma City RedHawks for two more years, through the 2014 season. The 2013 season will be the third year of the current partnership.
As the Houston Colt .45s, and later the Astros, the team was the MLB affiliate for the Oklahoma City 89ers from 1962 to 1972. Since then, the Oklahoma City team has been the Triple-A franchise for the Cleveland Indians, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Texas Rangers. In 1998, the team was renamed the RedHawks, and began playing its home games at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
“The Astros are in the middle of a new and exciting chapter in their franchise’s storied history, and we’re proud to be a part of it,” says RedHawks president and general manager Michael Byrnes.Read more
