The Lancaster JetHawks (High Class A; California League) and the Houston Astros extended their player development contract (PDC) through the 2014 season.
“The fans in Lancaster who cheer the JetHawks on at the Hangar are among the best in Minor League baseball,” Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. “We hope to continue to field winning teams there and win championships.”
“Coming on the heels of a memorable season, we are excited to continue our partnership with Houston,” JetHawks majority owner Peter Carfagna said. “The Astros have taken great steps forward by placing a lot of talent and focus in its Minor League system, and fans in the Antelope Valley will continue to have the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of the organization’s great drafts and trades.”
