MLB Officially Announces Cancellation of 2020 Minor League Season

June 30, 2020 - Texas League (TL) - Midland RockHounds News Release

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.

"It's hard to believe," said RockHounds general manager Monty Hoppel. "This is a first in my 37 years of baseball... no season."

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