BRISTOL, Va. -

A change is coming to the Appalachian League.

The Bristol White Sox will become the Bristol Pirates.

Officials with Bristol Baseball confirmed Wednesday morning that the Bristol, Virginia minor-league club will become an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates staring with the 2014 season.

We're told the deal has been in the works for the past couple of weeks.
