Royals extend Player Development Contract with Idaho Falls


The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has extended its Player Development Contract (PDC) with the Idaho Falls Chukars through the 2014 season.  In addition, the Royals extended their agreement with the Burlington Royals through the 2014 season as well.  Idaho Falls has been affiliated with the Royals organization since the 2004 campaign while Burlington, who has already clinched the East Division of the Appalachian League, has been a part of the organization since 2007.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to continue our relationships with both Idaho Falls and Burlington," said Royals' Director of Minor League Operations Scott Sharp.  "We are fortunate to have tremendous ownership and front office staffs along with great facilities in both cities to assist us in developing the next wave of Major League players."

"The Chukars are very pleased that the Royals have expressed their desire to continue their relationship with us, and we are very proud to continue to be a part of their organization. It's a great day for Chukars Baseball and for our fans," said Chukars President/General Manager Kevin Greene.
"Burlington Baseball Club is ecstatic to continue its relationship with the Kansas City Royals," said Burlington General Manager Ben Abzug.  "We have enjoyed our partnership with the Royals, and look forward to many more years of providing a home for the development of future Royals Major Leaguers. Burlington is lucky to be affiliated with such a dynamic organization on the rise that values the player development process so highly."
