2020 Minor League Baseball season cancelled
JACKSON, Tenn. — Minor League Baseball announced the official cancellation of the 2020 season.
The Jackson Generals season was scheduled to begin April 9, but was temporarily suspended due to concerns about COVID-19, according to a news release.
Minor League Baseball President and CEO Pat O’Conner released the following statement:
“These are unprecedented times for our country and our organization as this is the first time in our history that we’ve had a summer without Minor League Baseball played. While this is a sad day for many, this announcement removes the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season and allows our teams to begin planning for an exciting 2021 season of affordable family entertainment.”
“Although it’s not a surprise, the cancellation of our 2020 season still hurts,” Sabata said. “It’s unfortunate for our fans, but their health and safety will always be our number one priority. We look forward to the time when this pandemic is behind us and we can all gather together again and enjoy a fun filled night of Generals baseball.”
