WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - The Washington Nationals announced a four-year player-development extension with the Double-A affiliate Harrisburg Senators on Wednesday, a deal which starts in 2015.

The Nationals and Senators have been partners for each of the Nationals nine seasons in Washington; a relationship which extends back to the organization’s years as the Montreal Expos, making the upcoming season their 24th in partnership.

“Our partnership with Harrisburg and the Senators dates back more than 20 years,” said general manager Mike Rizzo. “And it is with that history in mind that we are excited to sign on with them for another four.”

“Harrisburg is an Eastern League gem, and we are proud to continue our association with a team, and a town, that have such rich baseball histories,” he said.

The Senators have gone to the Easter League finals nine times and won five championships in their time affiliated with the Nationals/Expos organization. The Senators have won their division twice since the Nationals arrived in Washington, and have made the playoffs three of the last four seasons.

“We are very pleased to announce this extension of our relationship with the Washington Nationals,” said Harrisburg Senators president Kevin Kulp. “They are a first-class organization from top to bottom and have placed not only great ballplayers on our team but also fine young men. We look forward to growing together in the years to come.”
