Dear Grizzlies Family,

I want to start this letter off by saying that I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. Throughout this ever-changing situation, our fans, partners, and community as a whole have been on the top of my mind. We are so grateful to the healthcare professionals and other frontline workers who have sacrificed the normality of their own lives to protect others. It is so important that we come together in any way we can to help each other get through this. We have enjoyed bringing you virtual baseball games, delivering food to our community and having the opportunity to still interact with so many of you even though we can’t be together at Chukchansi Park.

While we have been preparing for this outcome over the past few months, today's news of our season being canceled is, of course, devastating. We will greatly miss seeing all of you this year. Even though we will not be able to be together in downtown Fresno, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to talk to so many of you over the past few weeks. Hearing about our shared love of the game constantly reestablishes for me how important baseball is to our community and our country. We are thrilled that, although we will not have baseball at Chukchansi Park this season, baseball will continue at the Major League level and I look forward to enjoying the game we all love with my family.

As an organization, we are so thankful for how understanding you have been while we navigate this unprecedented time. We know that these past few months you have had a lot of questions and we appreciate your patience. Due to this unprecedented time, we have updated our ticket policy to take care of our fans. In line with these changes, we have begun working with all of our ticket account holders to roll them over to 2021, and we have refunded single game buyers. For more information, please visit us at bit.ly/Grizzlies2020Tickets.

Although there is no question that these are difficult times, I take solace in the fact that we WILL be back. The passion and joy that our crowd brings to every single home game is second to none and I cannot wait for all of you to pack Chukchansi Park once again. We truly have the best fans in Minor League Baseball and remain devoted to giving you the best experience in family fun and entertainment. We will not rest during this time. We are already planning behind the scenes to give you the best celebration imaginable once this hibernation ends and we take the field again in 2021.

Until then, stay safe, check in on one another and hold on to that Growlifornia feeling. No matter what, we are all one Underneath the Bear Flag.
