The decision came after Major League Baseball opted to suspend an agreement to supply players to its 261 Minor League Baseball affiliate teams.

"While this is a sad day for many, this announcement removes any uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season and allows our teams to begin planning for an exciting 2021 seasons of affordable family entertainment".

The team says any planned giveaways and promotions scheduled for the 2020 season will be moved to the 2021 season.

However, with the business end of each minor league affiliate nearly exclusively attached to gate revenue, playing in stadiums without fans was not beneficial.
