It's official, the Oklahoma City RedHawks will become the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. OKC has also been sold to the Dodgers organization.
The move was announced by Stan Kasten, President and CEO of the Dodgers at a press conference at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
The sale isn't finalized, but is expected to wrap up in the next few weeks.
LA has most recently been affiliated with the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Michael Burns, RedHawks GM and President said the team will "take a look at" possibly changing the name, color scheme and uniforms because of the prestige that comes with being affiliated with an organization like the Dodgers.
Tommy Lasorda, former Dodgers manager and baseball hall of famer, was on hand to discuss his role in the organization. De Jon Watson, Dodgers VP of Player Development, added that the team will be an intricate part of the community.
The RedHawks begin next season April 9, 2015, against Round Rock.
