Northwest Arkansas Naturals Will Not Play in 2020 as Minor League Baseball Seasons Are Canceled
Springdale, Ark. - Minor League Baseball today announced that the 2020 season for all of its clubs, including the Northwest Arkansas Naturals, has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Although it may not be surprising given how our world has changed over the last few months, the official news that we will not have baseball at Arvest Ballpark this summer is heart-breaking," said Justin Cole, Vice President/General Manager of the Naturals. "Not being able to share with our great fans the excitement of Naturals baseball on those beautiful summer nights is going to leave an awful void in our entire organization."
The Naturals organization is truly grateful to all of their fans and partners for their patience while the 2020 season was on pause in April, May, and June. The entire Naturals Baseball Family hopes that everyone in Northwest Arkansas and our surrounding communities stays safe and well as we all continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Naturals offices at Arvest Ballpark, as well as the Naturals Ticket Office and Team Store will remain closed for the time being.
The Naturals organization is committed to being as accommodating and flexible as possible, as we value the support of our great fans. PLEASE NOTE, all 2020 Naturals partners and ticket buyers will continue to receive direct communication from the Naturals organization with information on all options available.
Fans with additional questions or concerns in the meantime are encouraged to email the Naturals at [email protected] and we will route your request accordingly.
