Pulaski, VA - The Pulaski Yankees today shared the following statement regarding the 2020 season:

"We are optimistic that we will know more details about our 2020 season in the near future, and we know many of you have questions about if the season will be played, when it will begin, and how many fans will be allowed at Motor Mile Field at Calfee Park. These are questions we too are asking, as the answers will be provided by Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, and state/local government and health regulations. We will continue to receive information from these entities and plan/adjust our event schedule and ballpark operating procedures accordingly. At this time, we can tell you we do expect a delayed start to our 2020 season due to the simple fact that we will not start play prior to the Major League teams. As more information becomes available, we will share it with you. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time as we navigate these uncertain waters together."
