2020 Minor League Baseball season officially cancelled

The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed yet another sports victim, as the 2020 Minor League Baseball season has officially been cancelled.

Most teams have agreed to pay their weekly stipends of $400 through next month. As far as Instructional, Fall and Winter Leagues, they’re in “wait and see” mode.

Meanwhile, Major League Baseball plans to begin the 2020 season on July 23, with the utilization of 60 player “pools”, as well as “taxi squads” when traveling.
