All of us at the Jackson Generals want to sincerely thank our outstanding fans and partners for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented months, and wait for a picture of what baseball may look like in 2020. We miss the warming days of April spent at a ballgame, the sights, sounds and smells of The Ballpark on game day. But most importantly, we miss you, and the coming together of our community to celebrate America's pastime.
When we do make it through this, our goal is to reestablish that sense of community by providing you and your families the all-inclusive and affordable entertainment that make summer's in Jackson special. Our staff welcomes all questions that our fans may have regarding tickets or scheduling information, and we will continue to work diligently to relay all up-to-date information on the scope of the Minor League Baseball season in 2020.

CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED ON NEW OUTFIELD WALL
One of our biggest projects of the 2019-2020 offseason is now complete as we usher in a new decade of Generals baseball. Construction of our new outfield wall at The Ballpark began in January, stripping away the original plywood from the 1998 inaugural season. The Generals would like to thank the City of Jackson for their partnership on the project and their continued dedication to maintaining a top-tier facility. Also deserving of recognition are our own front office staff members, Matt Malone and Winston Brooks, who spent countless hours drilling, painting, and leading the construction effort.
