I imagine Jamestown is a fairly popular town/city name but I’ve only heard of the town in VA.

Minor league affiliates are a bit of a different concept. They’re owned by individuals and have deals with the leagues. MLB teams agree to deals with those affiliates. The MLB teams provide the players, and the minor league affiliates provide the team and the stadium. So essentially what has happened is the Pirates have moved their short season A-ball team from State College to Jamestown.

Do guys who are current members of SC Spikes now become part of Jamestown?
