· The Chiefs signed a four-year extension to be the Triple-A International League affiliate of the Washington Nationals. Last season, the Nationals’ minor-league affiliates had the third-highest winning percentage in baseball (.550). “The rebuilding of this organization is founded on developing and nurturing partnerships," said Syracuse Chiefs' President Bill Dutch. "The Nationals have shown themselves to be a successful organization and the Chiefs are thrilled to continue the relationship with them."

· The horse outside NBT Bank Stadium, once known as “Sportee,” will be known as “Homer” from now on, thanks to a “Rename the Horse” contest. The horse, which was originally part of Syracuse’s Horse on Parade project in the early 2000s, disappeared a few years ago, and was not seen again until November 2013, when he reappeared on top of the stadium gates. The name "Homer" was submitted by Chiefs fan Jay Bauer, who will receive a Chiefs sweatshirt and baseball hat as winner of the contest.

· 2014 half-season ticket plans and coupon books are now available. Half-season plans start at $200; two different 36-game plans of pre-selected dates for fans to purchase. Coupon books, available for $60, can be used to purchase 10 undated tickets for 2014 Chiefs games; the 10 tickets can be used as instructed at any Chiefs regular-season game.
