Our show originally scheduled for Northampton, Mass has been postponed due to a circumstance beyond our control.

By all accounts, it’s been a good relationship and both sides want it to continue for at least two more years.The Quakes and Dodgers announced Thursday an extension of their player development contract for two more years, through 2018. It had been set to expire at the end of the 2016 season. PDCs are set to expire after even-numbered seasons and can be renewed for either two or four years.Dodgers Director of Player Development Gabe Kapler said it was an easy decision to renew with the Quakes.“First, the fans are sensational,” Kapler said. “We want a good atmosphere for developing players and we have that here. Second, Grant (Riddle, Quakes vice president/general manager) and Brent (Miles, Quakes president) have been great to work with.” The Dodgers announced last week they had agreed to two-year extensions with Triple-A Oklahoma City, Double-A Tulsa, and low Single-A Great Lakes. Kapler didn’t give a reason as to why a Quakes agreement took another week to announce, but said there were no delays.“We just took a look to see what time would be best to make this announcement,” Kapler said.Kapler said that rookie-level Ogden is the only current affiliate that has not yet been renewed.The Quakes, who moved from San Bernardino for the 1993 season, spent eight seasons as a San Diego Padres affiliate and 10 seasons as an Angels affiliate before becoming a Dodgers affiliate beginning in the 2011 season.In the first five years affiliated with the Dodgers, the Quakes made the playoffs three times, and won the second California League title in their history last season. If the 2016 season ended today, the Quakes would be in the playoffs again. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
