"We are proud of our affiliation with the city of Burlington and the Burlington Royals," Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo said. "Our players have had a great experience while playing in Burlington, and we look forward to that continuing in the coming years."
Burlington has been a Royals Rookie-level affiliate since 2007. The B-Royals won the Appalachian League Eastern Division title in 2012 and came within one victory of the league championship that year, posting a 41-25 record.
