List of Los Angeles Dodgers minor league affiliates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Los Angeles Dodgers farm system consists of eight Minor League Baseball affiliates across the United States and in the Dominican Republic.[1] Four teams are independently owned, while four—the Oklahoma City Dodgers, Arizona League Dodgers, and two Dominican Summer League Dodgers squads—are owned by the major league club.

The Dodgers have been affiliated with the Rookie League Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League since 2003, making it the longest-running active affiliation in the organization among teams not owned by the Dodgers.[2] Their newest affiliate is the Tulsa Drillers of the Texas League which became the Dodgers' Double-A club in 2015.[2] The longest affiliation in team history was the 38-year relationship with the Triple-A Pacific Coast League's Albuquerque Dukes from 1963 to 2000.[2]

Geographically, Los Angeles' closest domestic affiliate is the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the Class A-Advanced California League which is approximately 40 miles (64 km) away. Los Angeles' furthest domestic affiliate is the Great Lakes Loons of the Class A Midwest League which is some 1,929 miles (3,104 km) away.

1990–present[edit]

The current structure of Minor League Baseball has been in effect since the 1990 season when the Class A level was subdivided for a second time with the creation of Class A-Advanced. The Rookie level consists of domestic and foreign circuits.[3]

1963–1989[edit]

The foundation of the minors' current structure was the result of a reorganization initiated by Major League Baseball (MLB) before the 1963 season. The reduction from six classes to four (Triple-A, Double-AA, Class A, and Rookie) was a response to the general decline of the minors throughout the 1950s and early-1960s when leagues and teams folded due to shrinking attendance caused by baseball fans' preference for staying at home to watch MLB games on television. The only change made within the next 27 years was Class A being subdivided for the first time to form Class A Short Season in 1966.[3]

1932–1962[edit]

The minors operated with six classes (Triple-A, Double-A, and Classes A, B, C, and D) from 1946 to 1962. The Pacific Coast League (PCL) was reclassified from Triple-A to Open in 1952 due to the possibility of becoming a third major league. This arrangement ended following the 1957 season when the relocation of the National League's Dodgers and Giants to the West Coast killed any chance of the PCL being promoted. The 1963 reorganization resulted in the Eastern and South Atlantic Leagues being elevated from Class A to Double-A, five of seven Class D circuits plus the ones in B and C upgraded to A, and the Appalachian League reclassified from D to Rookie.[3]
