Statement from the Mississippi Braves

We have received many questions regarding COVID-19 and its impact on our season over the past several days, and while not all of those questions have answers yet, we want to keep you as informed as possible.

The health and safety of our fans, employees, team, and community is always our top priority. Yesterday, MLB and MiLB announced that there would be a delay in the start of both Major League and Minor League Baseball season, in the best interest of public health. Currently, there is no specific timeline for the delay of MiLB's season.

As of this morning, we have not been given a date or time for our Opening Night, which was scheduled for April 9th. We place our full trust in MLB, MiLB, and healthcare professionals as they work on determining the timing of a safe return to Trustmark Park for our fans and team.

We understand that those of you who have already purchased tickets have questions and concerns, and we ask for your patience at this time. Once we are given more specifics on the delay, we will reach out accordingly with a plan of action.

We will continue to provide information as it becomes available.

Update: May 1st: Consistent with MLB's decision to postpon the start of the 2020 season for an additional period and in direction from the CDC and other public health officials, all Braves' locations will remain closed until at least May 31, 2020. We will review again then and
advise of further closures, as necessary. In addition, all onsite events and activities should be postponed.

A Message from Pat O'Conner

Dear Minor League Baseball Fans,
As you may be aware, with the closure of Spring Training camps in Arizona and Florida in response to the coronavirus outbreak across the country, the Minor League Baseball season will not start on April 9 as planned.

With the health and well-being of the players, umpires, team employees and our fans in mind, we will continue to monitor the developments and follow guidelines set forth by public health agencies and our partners at Major League Baseball.
Once the public health experts and agencies have decided it is safe to begin the 2020 season, and the players are physically ready to begin the season, we will do so. But, for now, I ask all fans to follow the protocols set forth by public health officials, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and your local government authorities.
Please visit MiLB.com to stay connected with your local team. Questions about exchanging tickets, refunds and other general questions should be directed to your local team.
Your health and safety are the top priority right now and our thoughts are with those around the world who have been affected by this outbreak.
Sincerely,
Pat O'Conner
President & CEO
Minor League Baseball
