ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Minor League Baseball issued the following statement today: "In light of the current coronavirus outbreak, and after consultation with medical professionals and our partners at Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball will delay the start of the 2020 Championship Season. We will continue to monitor the developments and will announce additional information about the 2020 season at a later date. We will work with Major League Baseball and our community partners to resume play as soon as it is safe to do so. The health and safety of Minor League Baseball fans, players and executives is our top priority, and our thoughts are with those around the world who have been affected by this outbreak."

"The first and foremost priority for the Lugnuts is the safety and health of our fans and employees," said Lansing Lugnuts owner Tom Dickson. "While we will miss playing baseball at Cooley Law School Stadium for the early part of the season, rest assured that once this threat passes, we will be back to provide inexpensive family fun to all the residents of Mid-Michigan. This season is the 25th anniversary of the Lugnuts coming to Lansing, and I promise that as soon as we can play, we will have a wonderful celebration for our fans."
