HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The Helena Brewers will remain in Montana’s capital city for at least four more years.

The team announced Thursday it signed a four-year player development contract extension with Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers.

The Pioneer League team’s president and general manager, Paul Fetz, says the partnership is the best it’s ever been.

Helena has been Milwaukee’s rookie affiliate since 2003. The teams had renewed their agreement every two years before the four-year deal was struck.

Milwaukee Brewers vice president and assistant general manager Gord Ash says he’s pleased with Helena team and the community support.

That’s despite a league-low average 849 fans per game this year. Ash says the fans who are there are active and enthusiastic.
