Lafayette, La. – The Texas Collegiate League (TCL) and each of our franchises are first and foremost hoping all of our host families, players, coaches and fans are staying healthy and safe as we continue to follow our states and CDC’s recommendations to overcome this global pandemic.
In light of the current outbreak, and after consultation with medical professionals, community leaders and with our supporting collegiate baseball programs, the TCL has decided to delay the start of the 2020 season. As such, the league has also shortened the season to a 24-game regular season plus post-season.
The TCL voted unanimously to move the season opener to July 3rd to provide our franchises ample time to prepare and ensure that the safety of our fans and all involved is addressed with the utmost scrutiny. The league continues to monitor social distancing requirements and has begun to put in guidelines for fans to be able to safely attend our ballparks this summer.
“As we have to address uncertain times across two states, we wanted to provide the best possibility to have baseball back for the athletes and most importantly an opportunity for fans and families to be a part of the TCL this season. Therefore, the decision to move the start date made the most sense at this time,” said Uri Geva, TCL League President.
The Acadiana Cane Cutters will open the 2020 season at home on Monday, July 6 against the Brazos Valley Bombers at Fabacher Field. All home games will begin at 7:00pm and will be broadcast live on ESPN 1420 AM.
