Dear Salem Red Sox Fans,
As you are more than likely aware by now, Minor League Baseball has delayed the start of the 2020 season in response to the coronavirus outbreak across the country. I want to personally thank our entire community for your patience during this very challenging time. As you know, there are daily updates on this pandemic so we are following the lead of Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, and our Government Officials through this very unique time.
Over the last few days, I think we have all realized that we not only want sports in our lives but we need sports in our lives. We should all be filling out our brackets today and waiting for the Madness of March. The countdown for Opening Day at Salem Memorial Stadium should be at 24 days. But instead, we are beginning to homeschool our children, we are waiting for the next update on the virus, and we are wondering when life will return to normal. Just like you, I do not know the answer to that but I do know one thing. I know that our staff has been working tirelessly this offseason to plan for an exciting 2020 season filled with fun theme nights for the entire family, fireworks shows, and exciting giveaways. Whenever Opening Day is, we will be ready to welcome you with open arms and show you an unforgettable experience at the ballpark.    
Your support and loyalty means a great deal to our staff and our families. If you have any specific questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our staff plans to be available during this time to service you, whether we are at the office or at home.  
Baseball WILL return and we will all return to the ballpark to experience the joys and memories that sports bring us every day.
Stay safe,
Allen Lawrence
General Manager
