The Nashville Sounds (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) and the Milwaukee Brewers extended their player-development contract (PDC) for two more years, through 2014.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Brewers,” said Sounds co-owner Frank Ward. “They are an organization that produces quality major leaguers through their minor league system, and we are looking forward to watching Milwaukee’s next tier of stars continue to develop in Music City.”
In eight seasons as a Brewers affiliate, Nashville has produced five winning records, made the playoffs three times, and captured the 2005 Pacific Coast League title. The Sounds carry a 589-559 record over that stretch.
“We are pleased to extend our working agreement with the Sounds. While the current facility and conditions are not totally satisfactory, we remain loyal and are very supportive of the ownership and Frank Ward in his continued efforts to get a much-needed new park,” said Brewers president of baseball operations and general manager Doug Melvin. “As general manager of a Major League franchise, I totally believe in this ownership, and if we can get the same support from the city, Nashville will be one of the most desirable franchises in minor league baseball.”
