Cedar Rapids, IA – The Cedar Rapids Kernels at the direction of Minor League Baseball are announcing the cancellation of their 2020 season.
“These are unprecedented times for our country and our organization as this is the first time in our history that we’ve had a summer without Minor League Baseball played,” said Minor League Baseball President & CEO Pat O’Conner. “While this is a sad day for many, this announcement removes the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season and allows our teams to begin planning for an exciting 2021 season of affordable family entertainment.”
Kernels General Manager, Scott Wilson “We are disappointed with the cancellation of the entire 2020 Minor League season by Minor League Baseball. We understand it is a decision they did not make lightly. We also understand how disappointed our fans and sponsors, who were looking forward to a terrific year of baseball, must be. Kernels baseball will return in 2021 and we look forward to seeing all our fans next season. Until then please take advantage of the Summer Reading Program for kids found on our website and support us through our extra events and the souvenir shop when possible.”
