With disappointment and sadness, today we learned that Major League Baseball has advised it will not provide players to the teams of Minor League Baseball in 2020 due to the many COVID-19 related challenges that would accompany staffing team rosters for a two-month season, resulting in the cancellation of this season. The 2020 campaign was set to be the Tribe’s 119th consecutive season of operation. And like every season before, we were looking forward to spending many days and nights at Victory Field with you celebrating Indians wins, enjoying postgame fireworks and soaking up the summer sunshine.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to those who have been affected by COVID-19 during this unimaginable time. To the frontline healthcare and essential workers helping our community push forward every day to keep us safe, we can’t thank you enough. The way our community has responded to these challenging times has been an inspiration.
Please continue to stay safe and healthy. We thank you for your continued support and greatly anticipate the return of baseball at Victory Field in 2021.
