(Greensboro, NC) The Greensboro Grasshoppers, in conjunction with Major League and Minor League Baseball, announced today that the 2020 season has been officially canceled. “It is with much sadness that we make this announcement,” said Grasshoppers President and General Manager Donald Moore. “We had hoped to play at least a partial schedule but the longer we went without this happening, the less likely this alternative became,” Moore continued.

This announcement ends a streak of 40 consecutive years of professional baseball in Greensboro. “We will be in touch with our community partners in the upcoming days and weeks to discuss things moving forward. We hope to roll all of our sponsorship, season ticket, suites, and group sales agreements into the 2021 season and appreciate those who have already agreed to do so.” Moore concluded.

The Grasshoppers are a Single-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates and have been recognized 6-times in the last 15 years with the South Atlantic League Club Merit Award, given annually to the most outstanding league franchise.
