Salt Lake Bees To Remain Angels Affiliate For Next 10 Years
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Salt Lake Bees will remain as the Los Angeles Angels affiliate for the following 10 years after accepting Major League Baseball’s invitation to become a Professional Development League (PDL) license holder.
“It is an honor to continue as the Triple-A affiliate of the Angels and we are excited to watch the next wave of future Angels stars come through Salt Lake,” said Bees President Marc Amicone. “We can’t wait for the 2021 season to start and look forward to working with Major League Baseball under this new agreement to continue to provide fans a fun, affordable, family experience at Smith’s Ballpark.”
Salt Lake has been an affiliate with the Bees since 2001. Over the past 20 years, players like Mike Trout, Griffin Canning, David Fletcher, Jered Weaver, Howie Kendrick, Chone Figgins, and Francisco Rodriguez showcased their talents at Smith’s Ballpark before going onto stardom with the Angels.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Salt Lake Bees organization and extend the longest-running affiliate relationship in Angels history,” said Angels General Manager Perry Minasian. “We are proud that the next generation of Angels stars will continue to call Smith’s Ballpark and Salt Lake City home for years to come.”
Salt Lake will compete in the West Division of the new 10-team Triple-A West League.
Other teams in the West Division include: the Las Vegas Aviators (Oakland A’s affiliate), Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks), Sacramento River Cats (San Francisco Giants) and Tacoma Rainiers (Seattle Mariners). The East Division will consist of the Albuquerque Isotopes (Colorado Rockies), El Paso Chihuahuas (San Diego Padres), Oklahoma City Dodgers (Los Angeles Dodgers), Round Rock Express (Texas Rangers) and Sugarland Skeeters (Houston Astros).
