The Milwaukee Brewers have announced an extension with their current Triple-A minor league baseball affiliate, the Nashville Sounds. Under the agreement, the Sounds will continue to serve as the Brewers Triple-A ball club until the end of the 2014 season. The Brewers, while supportive of the Sound, are hoping that the team's stadium issues are rectified prior to the end of this latest agreement,
"While the current facility and conditions are not totally satisfactory, we remain loyal and are very supportive of the ownership and Frank Ward in his continued efforts to get a much-needed new park," said Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin. "As General Manager of a Major League franchise, I totally believe in this ownership, and if we can get the same support from the city, Nashville will be one of the most desirable franchises in minor league baseball."
The Sounds Greer Stadium was built in 1978 and only underwent a $2.5 million dollar renovation in 2009. All plans for a new stadium have fallen through at the moment, but Sounds ownership is expected to be in talks with Nashville Mayor Karl Dean in the upcoming weeks.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Brewers," Sounds co-owner Frank Ward in the statement. "They are an organization that produces quality major leaguers through their minor league system, and we are looking forward to watching Milwaukee's next tier of stars continue to develop in Music City."
The Sounds sent sixteen players up to the Brewers major league squad this season. (via Nashville Biz Journal)
