Though it was inevitable at this point, the Minor League Baseball season, from Triple-A to low-A ball, has been canceled. That means Canal Park, which houses the Double-A Akron RubberDucks, will be mostly vacant in 2020.

RubberDucks general manager Jim Pfander joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the cancelation of the season, one in which they never got to play one game. While many minor league teams will suffer during the pandemic, and some being eliminated altogether, Pfander believes the RubberDucks under owner Ken Babby will remain afloat.

Canal Park’s gates will not be shuttered for the entire summer, though. Fourth of July fireworks will be held at the ballpark, and a July 11th matchup between Archbishop Hoban and St. Vincent-St. Mary will give the seniors a final sendoff.
