Memphis Redbirds Statement on Season Cancellation

June 30, 2020 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Memphis Redbirds News Release

"While we are disappointed by today's announcement, based on where we are on the calendar, it did not come as a surprise. We thank all of our season ticket members, sponsors and fans for their patience and support over the past several months. The loss of baseball has been devastating for our organization and to our local economy. We sympathize with so many that have felt the effects: our local vendors, downtown restaurants, and hotels that rely on 70 baseball games a year; non-profits that utilize various ticket and concession programs to raise much needed funds; and our hundreds of part-time stadium and concessions employees that help make the AutoZone Park experience one of the best in baseball.

Baseball will be back.

We look forward to seeing you again in the spring of 2021 and enjoying some hot dogs, ice-cold beverages and fireworks. Stay healthy."

Craig Unger

President, Memphis Redbirds
