Cougars Becomes Chicago Cubs Class A Team

It's official: The Kane County Cougars are now the Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.

The Kane County Cougars on Wednesday announced the signing of a two-year player development contract with the Chicago Cubs.

Effective Sept. 19, the agreement does not affect the ownership, management or front office staff of the Kane County Cougars in any manner.

The Cougars organization looks forward to April 4, which is Opening Night at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark, and the first home game featuring the Cougars' new affiliation with the Cubs.

"We are extremely excited about our new relationship with the Chicago Cubs,” said Cougars General Manager Curtis Haug. "The close proximity between both organizations will be mutually beneficial in numerous ways. We believe that the Cubs organization and their philosophies about the minor leagues, including scouting, player development, and involvement in the community, are a fantastic fit for our franchise.”
