The Boston Red Sox have extended their relationship with the Lowell Spinners, the franchises' Class-A affiliate, through the 2014 season. Lowell, which plays in the New York-Penn League, has been part of the organization since 1996.
"We are very happy to extend our productive relationship with the Spinners through 2014," Red Sox director of player development Ben Crockett said in a release. "The Spinners organization and the community of Lowell really embrace our young players and provide them an exciting introduction to Red Sox Nation. [Owner] Drew Weber, [president and general manager] Tim Bawmann and the entire Spinners staff foster an excellent atmosphere for development and we look forward to our continued partnership."
