Clippers Off to a Rough Start

The Columbus Clippers are off to a rough start with a 3-9 record and they are currently in last place in the International League West Division. The Clippers currently have the second worst record in Triple AAA baseball, with only Lehigh Valley playing as poorly with a 1-11 start.

An interesting fact about the Clippers is that they didn’t make the AAA playoffs during the mid 1990’s when they were affiliated with the New York Yankees.  However, 18 Clipper players from that ERA played with, the World Champion Yankees of 1996, including Derek Jeter, Jorge Posanda, Mariano Rivera, and Bernie Williams.

The Columbus Clippers are currently affiliated with the Washington Nationals, and their management voted recently to sign a two year player development contract with the Nationals.

The Clippers go on a 4 game road stand starting tonight against the Durham Bulls before returning home to play the Indianapolis Indians.
