Minor League Baseball Season Canceled
RECENTLY SIGNED ATLANTA BRAVES MINOR LEAGUE PLAYER, BRYSON HORNE DISCUSSES THE CANCELATION OF THE MINOR LEAGUE SEASON
Major League Baseball made it’s return on Monday as players reported to training camp, but the 2020 Minor League Baseball Season has been canceled.
After months of heated back and forth between MLB and the players association, they finally came to an agreement for a 60-game season. Minor League Baseball did not get the same luxury. Their season was officially canceled on Tuesday.
“It’s a tough thing for those guys, because they just want to play baseball, that’s what they love doing,” said Columbus State University Baseball Head Coach, Greg Appleton. “It’s a short window that these guys have to try and make it to the major leagues one day.”
“I kind of saw it coming, so it wasn’t as bad as just not knowing,” said Braves Minor League player, Bryson Horne. “Obviously I’d love to be playing. The only thing for me, just recently signing is instead of playing right away, I’m having to wait a couple months before I start my professional career.”
The Major League Baseball Season is scheduled to begin on July 23rd, or 24th.
