MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Redbirds’ 2020 baseball season is canceled.
Minor League Baseball tweeted Tuesday afternoon, saying it would not provide its affiliated teams with players for the 2020 season.
“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,” said Minor League Baseball President & CEO Pat O’Conner. “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.”
Craig Unger, president of the Memphis Redbirds, released a statement after the announcement.
