Minor League Baseball announced the decision to delay the beginning of Baseball Season in light of the current coronavirus outbreak. This includes Adam Hall and his Delmarva Shorebirds teammates, who were set to open up their 25th anniversary season, which has now been delayed until further notice.
“The Delmarva Shorebirds support the measures in place to protect the health and safety of our fans, employees, on-field personnel, and community,” said Shorebirds General Manager Chris Bitters. “While we are disappointed that the season will be delayed, the unprecedented situation we are all in needs our attention and adherence to the recommendations of the experts in this field. We look forward to playing baseball in 2020 and will announce updates on a regular basis.”
The Delmarva Shorebirds will rely on the instruction of Minor League Baseball for how to proceed with the season with people’s safety and health as first priority. As more information becomes available, the Shorebirds will provide updates as soon as they are determined.
