Prospect League Cancels 2020 Season

Prospect League Cancels 2020 Season

Springfield, IL-

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Prospect League Season for the Springfield Sliders. Our hearts go out to our players, sponsors, and growing fan base. We were hoping to bring a partial season to our home stadium at Robin Roberts Stadium but unfortunately that is not in the cards this year.

The Prospect League voted to cancel the season due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic concerns. Weekly ownership calls have been going on to discuss all the possible play scenarios and contingencies.  With so many unknowns, the League determined it would be impossible to guarantee the safety of players, coaches, umpires, host families, volunteers and fans during this health crisis.  There are 5 states with 12 teams and each state has their own guidelines to follow, which also makes it hard to get on the same page.

We are working to plan events and opportunities for players, fans and sponsors to interact, as we wait for recommendations from our Federal, State and Local officials. We still want to bring fun to fans this summer so please watch for updates on our website, social media and emails.

These events will all be done with the highest priority being the health and safety of fans attending events and social distancing requirements. The most important thing is that everyone does their best to protect their health, as well as the health of their family, friends and communities.  

 


Prospect League Cancels 2020 Season Due To COVID-19

Prospect League Cancels 2020 Season Due To COVID-19

ELKVILLE, Ill. - Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting government regulations, the Prospect League has made the heartbreaking determination to cancel the 2020 season. The decision was based on the varying guidelines for safety, protection and limits on public gatherings and travel across the five states that are home to Prospect League teams.

“The Prospect League is not alone in the baseball world in the difficult decision that we had to make,” said Prospect League Commissioner Dennis Bastien. “As we hung on to hope for a shortened season, the reality of our responsibility to the teams of people who make our season possible could not be met in the manner we felt necessary. It is a heartbreaking time for team owners as they feel the weight of this loss for their players, their fans and their communities. This was an exceptionally difficult decision made in an unprecedented time”.

Even though the cancellation of the 2020 season has occurred, we look ahead to unparalleled success for the 2021 Prospect League season. Opening Day 2021 and the homecoming of baseball in our communities will be looked forward to with great anticipation. We would like to thank our loyal fans and sponsors for their continued support.
