LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers have extended their player development contract with the Ogden Raptors, the club’s short-season rookie-level affiliate in the Pioneer League, for two more years, the organization announced on Tuesday.
All five Domestic Dodgers affiliates have now been extended through the 2018 season.
“We’re happy to extend our partnership with the Dodgers for another two years and are proud to be the longest running affiliate in the Los Angeles organization,” said Ogden owner and president Dave Baggott in a statement.
The Dodgers have been affiliated with Ogden since 2003, their longest current partnership. The club was also affiliated with the Ogden Dodgers in the Pioneer League from 1966-1973, with Tommy Lasorda managing the first three seasons there, and winning three league titles.
The 2016 Raptors won the South Division in the second half, but lost in the first round of the Pioneer League playofs to first-half champ Orem (Angels) in three games, dropping Game 3 in 11 innings on the road.
