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 Chiefs are largely based on last season's strong Boise team, with some holdover hitters from last year's Peoria squad and some pitchers from the AZL Cubs.

Team           League              W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                         (Teams)
Daytona        Florida State (A+) 71/66   5(12)       1       0
Peoria         Midwest (A)        75/64   5(14)       5       1
Boise          Northwest (A)      44/32   2(8)        8       8
Cubs           Arizona (R)        21/34   7(9)        2       5

A few of the Chiefs played for two teams last season and are counted twice in this table. One of the new Chiefs was acquired from another organization, while another started last year in another organization but was traded to the Cubs in mid-season.
