Jordy Mercer, Josh Harrison, Matt Hague and Chase d'Arnaud helped the Curve reach the highest level of Class AA baseball in 2010.
After Mercer's call-up to the Pirates on Tuesday, all four - the entire starting infield from the Curve just two years ago - have now had a taste of baseball's highest level.
"Jordy is a pretty good friend of mine," said Miles Durham, who played with all four on the 2010 team. "He's been playing really well, and I'm happy for him.
"That was a really good team. Every night we found a way to win, and the past two years, you keep seeing members of that team in the big leagues."
Though Matt Walbeck, the Curve's manager in 2010, has since departed, the team's current hitting coach Ryan Long served the same role two years ago.
"They were a solid group when they were here," Long said. "With a lot of those guys, there wasn't a whole lot [of coaching] to do. We talked mainly about hitting position and developing those guys.
"They have continued to develop on their way up."
The Curve piled up 14 hits in Tuesday's 6-1 victory, including two each from Tony Sanchez, Matt Curry, Jarek Cunningham and Jeremy Farrell and three hits from Durham.
"These players are different in some areas, but better in others," Long said regarding the current group of Curve players. "They are progressing. The learning curve is tough, especially in the first year at this level. Hopefully the second half will be better as they get a feel for this league."
Mercer became the 11th player from the 2010 team to make the majors. Only 93 players in the Curve's history have achieved that feat.
"[Long] has obviously got a ton of experience at what he's doing," Curve manager P.J. Forbes said. "He's very passionate about it and has a never-ending work ethic. He game-plans for these guys, and usually when they go out and execute the game plan, we have success."
