NORWICH, CT- Today Minor League baseball announced that Major League Baseball has informed them that it will not be providing its affiliate Minor League teams, such as the Norwich Sea Unicorns, with players for the 2020 season. As a result, the 2020 Minor League Baseball season has been shelved.
"While we are disappointed to be unable to entertain our great fans this summer, we understand the unprecedented nature of the circumstances surrounding the news that there will be no 2020 Minor League Baseball season," said Sea Unicorns General Manager Dave Schermerhorn. "The most important thing is the health and safety of our community, the fans, staff and players that make Dodd Stadium a summertime home away from home for so many."
The Sea Unicorns will be contacting those that have purchased 2020 season tickets, mini plans, individual game tickets, group outings and sponsorships.
While working closely with local and state officials, the Sea Unicorns are exploring opportunities for other events to be safely held at Dodd Stadium this summer. Details will be announced as they become available.
