In a lockdown, you’ll take any type of Braves news that you can get and today was actually kind of a big deal for the Braves, as it seems all of their MILB affiliates have been purchased by Endeavor, owner of WME, UFC, and IMG. Here’s an excerpt from the above article:
The owner of WME, UFC and IMG says that it is creating a new subsidiary, Diamond Baseball Holdings, which will own and operate a number of MLB Professional Development League clubs. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
The company will operate the Triple Affiliates of the New York Yankees (the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders), Chicago Cubs (Iowa Cubs), St. Louis Cardinals (Memphis Redbirds) and Atanta Braves (Gwinnett Stripers). The company will also operate all of the Braves’ other minor league teams as well as the Single A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants and the High-A affiliate of the Yankees. It is also in talks to acquire other minor league teams.
