Raptors and Dodgers extend PDC

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Ogden Raptors have extended their PDC through the 2020 season. The announcement was made jointly by Los Angeles Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten and Director of Player Development Brandon Gomes.

Gerelateerde afbeeldingRaptors team president Dave Baggott confirmed the agreement is a standard two-year deal, something the Dodgers did not mention. The new extension will bring the relationship between the two clubs to a total of 18 years.

“The Raptor’s front office and fans have provided an exciting playing environment for our men to develop,” said Gomes. “We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Ogden and look forward to once again being a part of the community.”

The Raptors are affiliated with the Dodgers since 2003. Since that year the club won one Pioneer League title in 2017.

With the signing of this extension, the only club that remains unsigned is the current Pioneer League champion, the Great Falls Voyagers. The Chicago White Sox are expected to sign any time soon.

The team led the league in attendance with 129,285 fans for an average of 3,402 per game. Ogden has led the league in attendance for 22 consecutive seasons.

The history of the Ogden Raptors dates back to 1977 when the team played in Canada as the Calgary Cardinals. From 1979 through 1984 the team played as the Calgary Expos. After the 1984 season, the team moved to Salt Lake City and played as the Salt Lake Trappers until 1993. In 1993 the team moved to Pocatello where it played under the moniker Posse. The team lasted only one season in Pocatello. In 1994 the team moved to Ogden and adopted the Raptors moniker.
