I don't no if anyone else said anything about this but there is a new affiliate listed on the White Sox home page The Great Falls White Sox A rookie A ball team.

I just noticed that the Great falls team was previously with the dodgers organization and is located in Montana.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that they play in Great Falls Montana. Being the Great Falls White Sox and all.

As someone who covers the Idaho Falls Padres in the Pioneer League I can tell you that Great Falls does play in Great Falls, Montana. They have a very nice stadium.

The Pioneer League is a rookie league that starts the season around June 15 and plays through Labor Day.

Great Falls for years was the Dodgers affiliate. I have no idea why they dropped them.

Former Sox pitcher Rich Dotson was named pitching coach for great Falls and I look forward to seeing him when they come to I.F.

Perhaps Great Falls offered a better deal to the Sox or perhaps the Sox got tired of "sharing" a site (I think Arizona also has a minor league team that uses Tuscon Electric Park after the major league teams break camp and head North)

I think they're just adding another one. Where has anyone heard about them dropping Ariz?
