Official Statements

From Threshers General Manager Jason Adams (July 1, 2020):

Threshers Nation,

An official announcement was recently made regarding the cancellation of the 2020 Minor League Baseball season. Although we anticipated this day, we are still saddened to officially close the book on the season.

Our staff worked tirelessly to prepare a season packed with incredible entertainment, value and community initiatives. We have salvaged some of these efforts through on-line campaigns and hope to reschedule the others next season including the fantastic giveaways.

If you had tickets for future individual games or group outings, we can assist you with converting them to either a 2021 credit or refund. Please email [email protected] for assistance with individual game purchases or reach out to your Threshers group representative for options.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this unprecedented situation and look forward to seeing you back at the ballpark!

Sincerely,

Jason Adams

Threshers General Manager

Major League Baseball™ (MLB™) has informed Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) that it will not be providing its affiliated Minor League teams with players for the 2020 season. As a result, there will not be a Minor League Baseball season in 2020.

"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."
