As was made public a few weeks ago, Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball are in the beginning of a difficult negotiation involving the Professional Baseball Agreement (PBA). We are disappointed that over the weekend confidential information from the Major League Baseball side was leaked that included the possible contraction of the Lancaster JetHawks, in addition to forty-one other Minor League Baseball franchises across the United States. While we are both very disappointed and surprised at this negotiating tactic we also understand this is a long negotiation that will result in many rumors and much speculation.
As the owners of this franchise, we can assure you we are 100% committed to keeping Minor League Baseball alive, well and flourishing in the Antelope Valley and for JetHawks fans everywhere. We are committed to continuing to provide affordable family entertainment and community services just as this franchise has done proudly for the past 23 years. We look forward to the resolution of this negotiation and getting back to focusing on the game and this community. We can't wait to see you all at the ballpark for Opening Day on April 9, 2020 and for many years to come.
Rock the Hawk!
