Sign of the future? Peoria ends season vs. Kane County

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Peoria Chiefs end their season this weekend with a three-game series against the Kane County Cougars in west suburban Geneva.
The irony of the season-ender is it could also be the Chiefs' last series as the Class A Midwest League affiliate of the Cubs.
The Cubs are planning to switch that affiliation to Kane County next season.
The Cougars currently are an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, but the 40-mile distance between Chicago and Kane County is an attractive lure for the Cubs.
Peoria has been a Cubs affiliate for the last eight seasons, with almost 30 years of affiliation since the 1980s. The Chiefs were also an affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals for parts of the last two decades.
