"The news that we will not have RubberDucks baseball at Canal Park this summer is devastating," RubberDucks General Manager, Jim Pfander said. "However, because of the immense value we place on the safety of our fans, players, staff and partners, we fully support the decision to cancel the season. We are looking forward to the many socially-distanced and safe events that we planned as a contingency to continue to bring Affordable Family Fun to our community while we wait for RubberDucks baseball in 2021. Akron has always been resilient in the face of adversity, and we look forward to opening day next April."
The Akron RubberDucks will continue to host safe and socially-distanced events throughout the summer at Canal Park while closely following all health and safety guidelines under the supervision and permission of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan. RubberDucks staff members are available by phone and email to answer any questions or concerns. The ticket office can be reached at [email protected]
