FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - The Fayetteville Woodpeckers 2020 Carolina League campaign has been officially cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Minor League Baseball announced today.

"We support Minor League Baseball's decision to cancel the 2020 season," said Dan O'Neill, Senior Director of Business Operations for the Houston Astros. "We remain committed to the safety of our community and the fans. Fayetteville's enthusiasm for baseball was evident in 2019 with nearly 300,000 guests who came to Segra Stadium and supported the Woodpeckers. I want to thank our loyal fanbase, season ticket holders and partners for supporting us and being patient during this challenging time. We look forward to hosting non-baseball events in 2020 as allowed by the state and local government and plan on being ready to play baseball in 2021."
