OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate officially changed its name from the Oklahoma City Redhawks to the Oklahoma City Dodgers on Wednesday.
The franchise was purchased in September by Mandalay Baseball LLC, an ownership group that included the Dodgers as well as a contingent led by Mandalay chairman and CEO Peter Guber, who is also a co-owner of the Dodgers.
"Using the Dodgers’ name is a privilege," Guber said. "It’s one of the three or four most iconic brands in sports all over the world, and we are thrilled we have the opportunity to share it and shine with it."
