Los Corazones de Reno's (Reno Aces) Abraham Almonte (7), Yasmany Tomas (23) and Travis Snider celebrate at the plate after scoring on Andy Young's bases-clearing triple in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Los Mariachis de Nuevo Mexico (Albuquerque Isotopes) on June 20, 2019, at Greater Nevada Field, in Reno. For Young, his first career Triple-A hit gave the Aces a 6-4 lead, which proved to be the final score. On June 30, 2020, the Minor League Baseball season was canceled due to COVID-19. 

Reno — Minor League Baseball announced today that the 2020 PCL season has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Reno Aces will not take the field for the 2020 season, but will focus on ensuring that the 2021 season is the best yet for Reno baseball fans.

“While this news has seemed inevitable for months now, this is unquestionably the saddest moment in recent memory for our national pastime,” said Reno Aces president Eric Edelstein. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder and we can’t wait to welcome our community back to professional baseball in Reno next April.”

All fans who paid for tickets or ticket packages in 2020 have received communication on account credit for the future. All fans who have account credit will be entitled to use the credit for any future Aces or 1868 FC game. Fans with questions may call our box office at 775-334-7000 or email tickets@renoaces.com

“We are heartbroken for our fans but we have to put the health and safety of our players, staff and our fans first,” said Aces general manager Emily Jaenson. “We can’t wait to welcome you back to the ballpark to watch your Reno Aces next season.”

“Today is a momentous day. The first season cancellation in the 118-year history of the Pacific Coast League,” said Pacific Coast League president Branch Rickey. “The stadium lights may have dimmed on this season before a batter had stepped into the box, but that also means they will shine brighter when next illuminated – as will our communities.”

More information on season members and ticket holders for 2020 games is available here.

The decision comes a week after the MLB announced its return to play plan, and just days after 24 Aces were named to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 60-man summer camp roster.
