Will Braves Stay in Lynchburg?
Lynchburg - The Hillcats are currently in the fourth year of a 4-year player development contract with Atlanta. Question is, will the Braves stay in Lynchburg?
Often times, the parent club lets the affiliate know early of its hopes to extend the contract. Atlanta has not tipped its hand. Early September is when either party can give written notice of its desire to end the contract. Hillcats GM Paul Sunwall says he hopes Lynchburg and the Braves can continue as partners.
