Oklahoma City Triple-A team becomes Dodgers
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Oklahoma City RedHawks are now the Dodgers.
Mandalay Baseball, LLC, a joint venture between ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers and an investor group led by Mandalay Entertainment Chairman and CEO Peter Guber, says the team's new logos and jerseys will mix elements of Dodgers history and the culture of Oklahoma City and Bricktown. The team will also come up with new mascots before the 2015 season.
The group purchased the franchise in September. Oklahoma City will be the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in 2015.
Since Triple-A baseball began in Oklahoma City in 1962, the Dodgers are the fifth big league team to call Oklahoma City its Triple-A home. This will be the third name used in Oklahoma City, following 89ers and RedHawks.
