Coronavirus pandemic prevents Minor League Baseball this season

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The 2020 Fort Myers Mighty Mussels, class A advanced affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, season has been shelved due to ongoing safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement was made by Minor League Baseball today and includes all teams.

“This is a disappointing day for us, but one that was sadly inevitable,” Mighty Mussels General Manager Judd Loveland said. “Our primary concern has always been the safety of our players, staff, and fans. This announcement reflects that. We can’t wait to open the gates for our incredible fans again in 2021 and be a big part in helping our Southwest Florida community recover from this difficult time.”
