The Quad Cities River Bandits (Low Class A; Midwest League) and the St. Louis Cardinals will remain partners for two more years, as the pair agreed to an extension of their player-development contract through 2012.
There was no real danger of the pair splitting, even though the agreement came late in the affiliation process. Quad Cities was in the playoffs this year, and the Cards’ first-round pick in the amateur draft, Shelby Miller, spent time with the Bandits.
