MLB Officially Announces Cancellation of 2020 Minor League Season
For the RockHounds and all of Minor League Baseball, "Opening Day" now means April, 2021.
As Major League Baseball moves forward with its plan to begin a contracted 60-game schedule in late July, MLB has also announced the cancellation of Minor League Baseball's 2020 season as a result of the COVID-19 virus.

The club is preparing a series of events at Momentum Bank Ballpark beginning in July and continuing until next "Opening Day"
