Boise Hawks renew deal with affiliate Chicago Cubs
The Boise Hawks and the Chicago Cubs made a big announcement today regarding their partnership. The two teams have extended their Player Development Contract through the 2014 season.
"We are so excited that the Cubs have shown their support for the Boise area," Hawks’ President/General Manager commented. "The loyalty they are showing the Hawks and patience they are giving us to improve the facilities here says a lot for their dedication to player development and to our great city and surrounding area."
The Hawks, who have been the short-season Class-A affiliate of the Cubs since the 2001 season, are coming off back-to-back Northwest League postseason appearances and have qualified for the playoffs in six of the 12 years under the Cubs umbrella – including titles in 2002 and 2004.
The Hawks just completed their 12th season as an affiliate of the Chicago Cubs and have won six Northwest League titles since 1991.
