(WHEC) — Minor League Baseball's 2020 season is officially canceled.

Given the pandemic and the league's reliance on gate revenues, it's beginning to seem less and less feasible that there would be a season as time has passed.


The fate of the Minor League season was decided during a conference call between MLB's board of trustees Monday afternoon.

It will be the first year since 1894 where there hasn't been a professional baseball season in Rochester. 

The Red Wings formed in 1899, making this the first year ever that the Red Wings have a canceled season.
