Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

This summer's Bees team is basically last summer's Idaho Falls aggregation.

Team           League             W/L     Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                         (Teams)
High Desert    California (A+)   73/67    4(10)      1        0
Burlington     Midwest (A)       64/73   11(14)      3        4
Idaho Falls    Pioneer (R)       40/36    4(8)       9        6
Royals         Arizona (R)       36/20    2(9)       2        4

A handful of the new Bees played for two teams last summer and are counted twice in this table. One player made a brief appearance at the Double-A level last year, another spent the season on the Disabled List, and a third played in another organization.
