Brewers general manager Doug Melvin was the GM of the Rangers from 1994-2001.
Also, former RedHawks pitching coach Lee Tunnell is now the Brewers' minor league pitching coordinator.
If the Brewers were to change their affiliation to the RedHawks, it wouldn't only affect the players on the field but the style of play.
Since the RedHawks are currently affiliated with an American League team, pitchers never hit when the RedHawks play.
But with a National League affiliate, pitchers would hit when they play another NL team.
Currently, the RedHawks are the only team in the American Southern Division that is not affiliated with an NL team, although Round Rock would be next year if it is affiliated with Texas.
Seven other PCL teams have NL affiliates.
While the Rangers have been stable with their Triple-A affiliate, the Brewers have had five top affiliates since 1987.
Milwaukee has been affiliated with Nashville since 2005. Before that, the Brewers were affiliated with Indianapolis (2000-04), Louisville (1998-99), Tucson (1997) and Denver (1987-1996).
