The Memphis Redbirds and St. Louis Cardinals have officially renewed their affiliation through the 2014 baseball season.
St. Louis General Manager John Mozeliak said "We are very pleased to have extended our relationship with the Redbirds organization and the city of Memphis for an additional two years. The Redbirds ball club and the Memphis fans have been tremendous supporters of the Cardinals organization for many years."
John Pontius, the Memphis Redbirds Foundation treasurer, said in a statement “We are excited to extend the affiliation agreement with the St. Louis Cardinals. Memphis has been and always will be Cardinals Country,”
Baseball affiliation agreements last for two years at a time, and are open for renewal or change at that time. The Redbirds have been the Triple A affiliate of the Cardinals since 1998.
