Lakeland, FL - Florida State League President Ken Carson announced today that the Florida State League final weekend series and post season playoffs will be cancelled because of the threat of Hurricane Dorian's potential impact on the State of Florida.
"This was a tough decision to make" said Carson. "The safety of our players, staff, umpires and fans are top priority to us. Team travel is also a great concern during hurricanes."
Entering tonight's final game in Clearwater against the Threshers, the Flying Tigers were only two games behind the Dunedin Blue Jays for the Second Half North Division Championship.
All paid tickets for August 30, August 31 and September 1 may be exchanged for any game during the 2020 Lakeland Flying Tigers season. Complimentary tickets cannot be exchanged.
To exchange your tickets, please contact the Lakeland box office at (863) 413-4140 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to Hurricane Dorian, the Lakeland box office will close on Friday, August 30 at noon. The Flying Tigers will announce when the box office has reopened.
For more information, please contact the Lakeland Flying Tigers at (863) 686-8075 or at email@example.com.
The Flying Tigers thank our fans for their support during the season and our thoughts are with you as we all prepare for a major hurricane potentially impacting our community.
