The Frontier League announced today that the 2020 season has been cancelled due to the travel and gathering restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 season was supposed to be the first with the addition of five new former Can-Am League teams.
With teams located everywhere from the Midwest to the East Coast and up into Canada, travel for the 2020 season didn’t seem logical, especially with multiple teams in states like Illinois, that still have very strict guidelines on gatherings.
The Boomers were looking to come off a season where they finished with a record of 47-49, ending the year seven games back of the Lake Erie Crushers in the Frontier League’s East Division and seven games behind the River City Rascals for the final wild card spot.
Boomers stadium is still allowed to have smaller events with the practice of social-distancing. They have already hosted outdoor dining at the stadium and will have Drive-In fireworks shows on July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
With the news of the MLB starting up and the American Association playing games in hub cities, the Boomers and the Frontier League weren’t as lucky, we’re going to have to wait for 2021 to see the Boomers take the field again.
