Though there really wasn’t any doubt about it, the Daytona Cubs (High Class A; Florida State League) and the Chicago Cubs signed a two-year extension to their player-development contract (PDC), through 2014.
Apparently the two sides agreed to a deal and are only now getting around to announcing it. Actually, there have been no press releases issued yet — just a chat with the local newspaper.
Of course, some of the timing might have to do with a ballpark proposal coming before the Daytona Beach City Commission tomorrow night. the proposed $1.25 million upgrade to Jackie Robinson Ballpark would convert office space to workout facilities and additional clubhouse space. The Cubs are the only FSL team not to play at a spring-training facility and don’t have access to the advanced training tools found at spring camps.
