The Mets have announced that they will move their Single-A affiliate in the South Atlantic League to Columbia, S.C. next season. Currently, that affiliate is stationed in Savannah, Ga.

The Mets had an affiliate in Columbia previously, from 1983 to 2004.

“We are excited about returning to Columbia where we had a presence for over two decades,” Alderson said in a statement. “So many of the top Mets stars, like current team captain David Wright, got their start in Columbia. The plans for Spirit Communications Park look spectacular, and we can’t wait to develop the next generation of Mets Major Leaguers here.”

The new team will announce their team name, logo and uniform in the upcoming future.
