USA Softball announced that the "Stand Beside Her" tour, presented by Major League Baseball (MLB), is postponed until May 11 due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. As a host of a "Stand Beside Her" tour stop with an event prior to May 11, we are working with USA Softball to potentially reschedule our Midland stop. Hopefully by mid-April, USA Softball will make an announcement for the status of the tour and rescheduled tour stops, which may include the Midland tour stop originally scheduled for April 25. If we are able to get a new date for the game, we will contact you on the process to exchange and obtain new tickets. This rapidly developing situation has warranted consideration of many factors, and the health, safety and wellness of all those involved continues to be the top priority.
Our hearts go out to those impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and we understand the critical importance of protecting those most susceptible to the virus. USA Softball and the Midland RockHounds continue to monitor this fluid situation closely, and is advising everyone to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state's public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including area school districts and government agencies.
While we understand the disappointment that may come with this decision, this decision was made in the best interest of the health and safety of our athletes, staff, fans and the softball community. We understand that you will have a variety of questions regarding the rescheduling of the tour stop, ticket sales and refunds, however at this time the information above is what is currently available. As soon as we have information available regarding the rescheduling of our tour stop, which we anticipate to have by mid-April, we will be sure to share it.
