Rochester Red Wings have new parent club: Washington Nationals

The Rochester Red Wings have a new parent club: the Washington Nationals.

Sen. Chuck Schumer announced the affiliation Thursday morning, saying he had spoken directly with Nationals owner Mark Lerner.

“For Spikes, Mittsy, Milo, and all members of the Red Wing’s world-class organization, especially Naomi Silver and Dan Mason, I’m excited we can add the next great chapter of Red Wings baseball to our ‘things to be thankful for’ list this Thanksgiving,” he said.

The Red Wings had been affiliated with the Minnesota Twins since 2003. The Twins called off the relationship earlier this month and are expected to pair with the St. Paul Saints, until now an independent league team.

Glad Schumer is keeping focused on the important stuff.

Anyway, this is a much better fit for the Nats than Fresno
