Angels, Dodgers Complete Informal Swap Of California League Affiliates

Two days after the Dodgers swooped in and reached an affiliation agreement with the Class A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Angels reached agreement with the Inland Empire 66ers, completing an affiliate swap of sorts.

The Quakes were an Angels affiliate for the last 10 seasons, but struck a deal with the Dodgers earlier in the week. That left the 66ers, who play their games in San Bernardino, without a major league team. Enter the Angels, who reached agreement with the 66ers through 2012, the same two-year length of the Dodgers' deal with Rancho Cucamonga.

"The Angel organization is excited to begin our relationship with the Inland Empire 66ers,’ said Angels Director of Player Development Abe Flores. "They have a first rate ballpark and front office as well as passionate fans that continually support the club. It is our hope to cultivate a relationship with the City of San Bernardino and embrace fans throughout the Inland Empire."

The 66ers were a Dodgers' affiliate for the last four seasons.
