Sky Sox Begin Search For New Major League Affiliate‏

The Sky Sox have had a great partnership with the Colorado Rockies for the past twenty-two years, since their entrance into Major League Baseball in 1993. We are certainly disappointed that the Rockies have decided to end that relationship, but we respect their right to do what they feel is best for their organization and we wish them nothing but the best.  As we move forward as an organization, we are incredibly excited about beginning a new chapter in Sky Sox history.

We are currently going through the affiliation process, as all teams across the country do every two to four years. This is the time when teams are afforded the opportunity to survey the baseball landscape to see which teams are available for affiliation.

The most important part of this process for our Colorado Springs community and Sky Sox fans to understand is that, regardless of which Major League affiliate the Sky Sox will have in 2015 and beyond, exciting Triple-A Baseball is guaranteed at Security Service Field for years to come.

Colorado Springs has a rich baseball history with over thirty years of professional, affiliated baseball played in the Front Range region. Over that time, Sky Sox teams have been affiliated with such great Major League organizations as the Chicago White Sox (1950-1958), Cleveland Indians (1988-1992), and the Rockies (1993-2014).

We could not be more excited about our future here in Colorado Springs. We have always had tremendous support from the community. In fact, the Sky Sox are coming off the highest attendance year in our long history with over 350,000 fans cheering on their Sky Sox in 2014. We feel we have the best community and fans in America, and because of this support, we have enjoyed great success on and off the field in our first twenty-seven years. As we continue on, we very much look forward to showcasing the best talent in Triple-A Baseball, and providing Colorado Springs with the best in affordable family entertainment for the next twenty-seven years!
