Jackson, TN - The Jackson Generals, Double-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks have released the start times for all 70 home games during the 2020 season, including start times for the Southern League Home Run Derby and All-Star Game.
New to the Generals schedule are 6:35 pm start times on all Monday through Saturday games beginning in June and running through the end of the season. During April and May, Monday through Saturday games will begin at the standard 6:05 pm time. Sunday contests will begin at 2:05 pm over the first half of the season and push back to 6:35 pm starting in July. The Generals will also host three 11:05 am starts (Thurs. 4/16, Wed. 4/29, Thurs. 5/7) as well as a 12:05 pm contest on Tuesday, May 19th.
"We are very excited for the upcoming 2020 season. In addition to the 52nd Southern League All-Star Game, we are thrilled to host a full schedule of games that are sure to excite our fan base," said Generals GM Marcus Sabata. "One key change will be moving our evening game times beginning in June from 6:05 pm to 6:35 pm. We feel that this will allow for a bit more cooling off during the hot West Tennessee summer, as well as allowing our fans more time to head to the games after work. We look forward to another championship caliber season in 2020."
