The Albuquerque Isotopes will end their affiliation with the Los Angeles Dodgers next season. The Major League club will move their Minor League affiliate to Oklahoma City.
Last week, an Oklahoma City newspaper reported Los Angeles is going to move its Triple-A affiliate from Albuquerque to Oklahoma City. Isotopes general manager John Traub told the Journal there are, understandably, some misconceptions about what will happen if the Dodgers and Isotopes part ways.
“We’ve read the same reports and speculation,” Traub said. “But regardless of who our major league affiliate is, there will be baseball in Albuquerque next year. It will be Triple-A baseball and we will have a major league affiliate.”
It seems like not too long ago when El Pasoans were told that Triple A ball teams were never available, and we’d better jump at the opportunity. What a dynamic universe we live in.
