BrewersThe Milwaukee Brewers announced today a two-year player development contract extension with the Brevard County Manatees of the Class-A Advanced Florida State League through the 2012 season.

“We are pleased to extend our working relationship with the Brevard County Manatees and their management team,” said Brewers Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin. “Brevard County has provided the important resources and environment needed to develop and prepare our young players for future success in the organization and the relationship continues to work well for our needs.”

The Manatees are owned and operated by Central Florida Baseball Group, LLC.

“We are excited for the opportunity to continue our relationship with the Brewers, who are a class act top to bottom,” Central Florida Baseball Group Chairman Dr. Tom Winters said.

The Manatees, located in Viera, Fla., have been a Brewers affiliate since the 2005 season. They play their home games at Space Coast Stadium.

“We are very excited to extend our player development contract with the Milwaukee Brewers,” stated Brevard County Manatees General Manager Kyle Smith. “We are glad to be able to continue grooming the young talent in the Brewers organization and also providing professional baseball to Brevard County.”
