Yard Goats Make it Official: No Season

Yard Goats


The Hartford Yard Goats sent out an email yesterday confirming there will be no 2020 season.  Thank you, Paul Hensler, for passing along…

Dear Friends,
It is with a heavy heart we announce the 2020 Yard Goats season has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns over the Coronavirus. Following CDC guidelines and medical recommendations, Minor League Baseball and the Eastern League of Professional baseball determined it would be impossible to guarantee the safety of players, coaches, staff and fans during this unprecedented health crisis. While this is the correct decision at this time, it doesn’t hurt any less. We’ll miss our ticket holders and partners who visit day in and day out, our fans who fill the seats with family & friends, and our dedicated game day staff. Most of all we’ll miss the cheers, and the smiles, and the looks of amazement on the faces of our littlest fans.

Fans who purchased tickets for a 2020 Hartford Yard Goats home game will soon be contacted by a Yard Goats representative.
Rest assured we’ve already begun planning the 2021 season, one that will feature the Eastern League All Star Game at Dunkin’ Donuts Park. Our promise to you is that 2021 will be more than just a “return to normal”. It will be the biggest, best, most entertaining season to date. It’s not a “goodbye”, it’s a “see you later in April”.

Thank you,
Hartford Yard Goats
