Blue Jays extend contract with New Hampshire
ST. PETERSBURG -- The Blue Jays' Double-A affiliate will be sticking around Manchester, New Hampshire, for at least the next two seasons.

Toronto officially announced on Wednesday morning a two-year extension with New Hampshire of the Eastern League for the 2013-14 seasons.

The Blue Jays have been partnered with the Fisher Cats since 2004, which it the longest running non-owned affiliate in the organization.

"The Blue Jays are very pleased to be extending our working agreement with the Fisher Cats," said director of Minor League operations Charlie Wilson.

"The Fisher Cats represent the best of Minor League Baseball with state-of-the-art ballpark and facilities, passionate baseball fans, and a great front office led by [Fisher Cats owner] Art Solomon and [Fisher Cats president] Rick Brenner."

The Fisher Cats are the reigning Eastern League champions, and they also won a division crown in 2004. They are currently led by manager Sal Fasano and possess some of the club's top prospects including Deck McGuire, Chad Jenkins and Mike McDade.
