  • 1994-1995 MINOR LEAGUE AFFILIATIONS CHANGES

         The deadline for changes to minor league affiliations is
    Sunday, September 25.  Next week, MLB release its list of
    affiliation changes for '95.  The SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY has
    compiled a list of moves as of yesterday.  Teams have until
    midnight Sunday to strike a deal.  Unaffiliated minor league
    teams will be examined by Jimmie Lee Solomon, MLB's Dir of Minor
    Leagues, in an effort to match them up with teams in need of
    player development contracts (PDC).
         KEY:  R = Rookie League.  SA = Single-A, short season.

    NOTE: Teams with the symbol (^) next to their name have increased their ticket prices over last year. "'93 AVG." is based on the same number of home dates as the teams have had thus far in '94. "TIX $" is the team's average ticket price. "TIX REVENUE" is an approximated figure based on the increase/decrease in attendance for the same number of home dates from '93. The +/- revenue figures take into account all new ticket prices.
