Your 2015 Oklahoma City BlueHawks

The Oklahoman is reporting that the Pacific Coast League’s Oklahoma City RedHawks are about to be sold to a group affiliated with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and that next year the Birds will be the Dodgers’ Triple-A farm team.

As it happens, this year the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate is in Albuquerque, and things aren’t working so well:

The Dodgers reportedly have been searching for a city more suitable to evaluate their top prospects. Starting last season, the Dodgers have required Isotopes officials to place baseballs in a humidor to try to counteract the effects of the thin, dry air, Albuquerque being 5,300 feet above sea level.

The RedHawks, says the report, should sell for somewhere between $22 and $28 million.

Update, 17 September: Here’s the official announcement.

    This report should make tonight’s season ticket holder “networking” event the club is hosting very interesting.
