Blue Jays move to Appalachian League
The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have moved their minor league affiliation from Medicine Hat of the Pioneer League (A- Rookie Advanced) to Pulaski of the Appalachian League (A- Rookie Advanced).
Toronto will take over from the Texas Rangers who had been affiliated with Pulaski, Virginia since the 1997 season.
The Blue Jays have been affiliated with Medicine Hat, Alberta since 1978 and will begin play next season in Pulaski. We are looking forward to establishing another successful long-term relationship.
