The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to continue their partnership with Class A Inland Empire 66ers of the California League through 2014.
Inland Empire has been the official Class A representative of Los Angeles since February 2011 and have seen the likes of Kole Calhoun, David Carpenter, Jean Segura and Nick Maronde work their way up from the 66ers to the Angels.
Angel’s Assistant General Manager, Scott Servais noted of the extension in a press release:
"Over the first two years of this partnership, the Inland Empire 66ers have quickly become a special part of the Los Angeles Angels family. From the outstanding relationship between our two front offices, to the incredible amount of support we have seen from Angels fans and the San Bernardino community alike, we are very excited that the 66ers will continue to play a major role in our player development process for years to come."
Inland Empire finished in last place in the South Division of the California League in 2012. First pitch for the 2013 66ers season will be on Thursday April 4, 2013.
