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.

The 2004 Silver Hawks came from everywhere in the Diamondbacks system.

Team         League          W/L     Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                    (Teams)
Lancaster    California (A+) 73/67   7(10)       2       1
South Bend   Midwest (A)     72/64   4(14)       3       2
Yakima       Northwest (A-)  45/31   2(8)        4       7
Missoula     Pioneer (R+)    38/40   5(8)        5       4

Many of these players appeared for two teams and are counted twice in this table. One Hawk made a brief appearance in Triple-A ball last year, two more played at Double-A. One South Bend player was in another organization last summer; two apparently did not play professionally.
