MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - There won’t be any taking kids out to the ballgame, no peanuts, and no CrackerJacks. And it doesn’t appear they’ll ever come back, at least for the 2020 season. Minor League Baseball officially announced there will be no season in 2020.

“While this is a sad day for many, this announcement removes the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season and allows our teams to begin planning for an exciting 2021 season of affordable family entertainment,” said Minor League Baseball President & CEO Pat O’Conner.

The Montgomery Biscuits released a statement in response to the 2020 season being canceled.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 Virus Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball have announced that the 2020 MILB Season has been cancelled. The Montgomery Biscuits are saddened by the news and what it means for fans and the Montgomery community.
