On April 14, 1934, the Phillies entered into an affiliation agreement with the New York-Penn League Hazelton Mountaineers. This was the first minor league affiliation for the Phillies.[1]

The Philadelphia Phillies maintained eight minor league affiliates as of 2010. This list compiles the history of their minor league affiliates since the re-organization of the Minor League classification season prior to the 1963 season.

1962 and prior years[edit]

Prior to the 1963 season, organized baseball reclassified its minor league system. The classification of leagues as B, C, D, and E changed to the current A-based rankings: AAA, AA, A, short-season A, and Rookie-Advanced. Many leagues were reclassified. Class D day would be equivalent to the Rookie level today.

The Eastern League and Southern League moved up to AA; the Carolina League changed from B to A; the Northern League and California League moved from C to A; the Florida State League, Midwest League, Western Carolinas League (later renamed the South Atlantic League), and the Georgia-Florida League all moved from D to A. The New York-Penn League became an A (short-season) league, having previously been a D League. The other short-season A league, the Northwest League, had been a B league. The new Rookie-Advanced class was filled by the formerly C Pioneer League and D Appalachian League.
