The Orem Owlz announced an extension of the team’s Player Development Contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim through 2012. The previous agreement was set to expire after the 2010 season.

“We are pleased to reach this long-term extension and that the Orem Owlz Baseball Club will be an Angels’ affiliate through the 2012 season,” said Flores. “The Angels believe the Orem franchise is the ‘crown jewel’ of the Pioneer League and we value our strong relationship with the Owlz’ ownership, front office and their special group of supportive fans. The Angels look forward to more success in Orem, both on and off the field, in the years to come.”

As the Angels’ Pioneer League affiliate since 2001, the Owlz, under the direction of manager Tom Kotchman, have won three league titles and six divisional titles, while qualifying for the playoffs every year.

“We are excited about furthering our relationship with the Angels,” said Wells. “They continually prove to be an organization committed to quality players on and off the field. That commitment has resulted in success at the Major League level and we are pleased that success starts here in Orem.”

Several franchise players have gone on to play for the Angels in the majors, most recently Casey Kotchman, Howie Kendrick, Dallas McPherson, Jeff Mathis and Reggie Willits. Many current players on the Angels 40-man roster have also come through Utah County, including Brandon Wood, Jose Arredondo, Nick Green and Sean Rodriguez.
