|Bees Looking for New MLB Affiliation
|The Burlington, IA minor league baseball team is searching for a new major league affiliation for next season.
The Kansas City Royals organization reportedly has told Burlington Bees officials that they will be moving to Kane County in suburban Chicago starting next spring.
The Bees have been the Royals class A affiliate since 2001, and last year were the Midwest League's bottom feeders, sporting the worst record in the league with just 46 wins and 90 losses.
