ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, (WKBN) – Reports that the 2020 Minor League season has been canceled are false, according to Minor League Baseball.

Wednesday night, the governing body issued the following statement in reference to those published reports:

“The report circulating tonight that the 2020 Minor League Baseball season has been canceled is
false. Minor League Baseball has confirmed with Major League Baseball that no such statement was
made. No decision has been made as to when it will be safe to begin the 2020 season.”

The start of baseball season in both the Major League and Minor League remains unclear thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
