The Connecticut Tigers and the Detroit Tigers have agreed to a two-year extension to their player development contract (PDC), guaranteeing the agreement through the 2012 season.
“We are proud to continue our affiliation with the Detroit Tigers for two more years,” said Connecticut Tigers General Manager Andrew Weber.
“They are one of the most storied franchises in all of professional sports and we feel privileged to have a part in their minor league system. I hope our fans will enjoy watching Detroit’s prospects play at Dodd Stadium for years to come.”
The current PDC was set to expire at the end of the current season.
“The Tigers are very pleased to enter into this extension agreement with Connecticut,” said Detroit Tigers Director of Minor League Operations Dan Lunetta. “Our partnership with Miles, Andrew and the Connecticut management team has developed quite well over the past two years and we view Norwich as a locale that fits well into our player development system. We are confident that the fan base will grow in the coming years and that the facility will be well maintained. We look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”
