2020 Nashville Sounds and Minor League Baseball Season Cancelled

June 30, 2020 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Nashville Sounds News Release

NASHVILLE - In conjunction with today's announcement from Minor League Baseball (MiLB), the 2020 Nashville Sounds MiLB season has been cancelled.

"We are extremely disappointed to not be able to bring Minor League Baseball to our fan base in Middle Tennessee in 2020," said Nashville Sounds General Manager Adam Nuse. "While we will not have our traditional Minor League Baseball season this year, we're continuing to finalize details for the 2020 Nashville Sounds Alternate Season and hope to share those plans as soon as possible."

The lost 2020 baseball season in Nashville marks the city's first year without professional baseball since 1977, one year prior to when the Sounds were founded and joined the Double-A Southern League. In the five seasons since moving from Greer Stadium to First Horizon Park, over 2.8 million fans have passed through the gates.

"These are unprecedented times for our country and our organization as this is the first time in our history that we've had a summer without Minor League Baseball played," said MiLB President & CEO Pat O'Conner. "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."

O'Conner will be available to MiLB team beat writers and national baseball writers from news outlets to discuss today's announcement at 6:00 p.m. EDT. For a link to the digital press conference, e-mail Jeff Lantz at [email protected]
