A's bring Class A Beloit into farm system
ARLINGTON -- The A's added a new Minor League affiliate on Tuesday, welcoming in the Beloit Snappers of the Class A Midwest League by way of a two-year player-development contract.

Beloit, in Wisconsin, replaces Burlington (Iowa), also of the Midwest League. Burlington has agreed to a player-development contract with the Angels after two years with Oakland.

"It is an established Single-A market with a strong baseball community and management team," A's general manager Billy Beane said of Beloit in a release. "We look forward to a very successful partnership."

Beloit originally joined the Midwest League in 1982 as an expansion franchise affiliated with the Brewers. That partnership ended after the 2004 season, at which point the Snappers changed affiliation to the Twins, a relationship that continued through this past season.

The Snappers play their home games at Harry C. Pohlman Field, which seats 3,501. It first opened in 1982, receiving renovations in 1995.
