Columbus Business First wrote Indians end ties with Bisons; switch to Clippers expected

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

In a move that was expected, the Cleveland Indians this week notified the Buffalo Bisons they were terminating the baseball teams� long-term Triple A affiliation agreement.

Severing the relationship essentially became a done deal in April, when Cleveland declined to extend its minor league affiliation agreement with Buffalo. Cleveland had to wait until the Bisons� season ended before dropping the team as its top affiliate.

The Indians are expected to move their Triple A franchise down Interstate 71 to Huntington Park, where the Columbus Clippers will play next spring. The Clippers were the affiliate of the Washington Nationals this year after losing a longtime agreement with the New York Yankees.
