It was a foregone conclusion, but that can’t mask all excitement surrounding the announcement that the Las Vegas 51s (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) and the Toronto Blue Jays extended their player-development contract by two years. Not.
“We’re very happy to have the Blue Jays back in Las Vegas,” 51s General Manager Don Logan said. “We have a tremendous working relationship with them and we have seen several of their top prospects play in Las Vegas over the past two seasons.
“Charlie Wilson (Toronto’s Director, Minor League Operations) is the best in the business and we look forward to seeing some of the top players from the 2010 playoff team at Double-A New Hampshire advancing to the Triple-A level in 2011.”
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with such a strong organization in Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2011 & 2012 seasons,” Toronto Assistant General Manager, Player Development Tony LaCava said. “General Manager Don Logan, Manager of Baseball Administration Denise Korach and staff provide a professional environment for our minor league talent to develop.”
