ROCHESTER — With the news that the minor-league baseball season is officially canceled, the Rochester Red Wings are offering fans who purchased tickets for the 2020 season various options.
Fans who bought tickets may exchange them for any game in 2021 for a ticket of equal value. A detailed list of specific ticket-exchange information can be found at RedWingsBaseball.com.
Season-ticket holders, as well as group and catered-event customers, and Ticket Pack customers, will be contacted directly to discuss applying those funds toward the 2021 season.
Refunds will be made available by request.
Since 1885, the only season in which professional baseball has not been played in Rochester at any point was 1893-94.
“This is a sad day in the illustrious history of our franchise and our community, but we will now turn our focus and energy into making the 2021 season one of the best in our history,” General Manager Dan Mason said.
“While this saddens me and so many of our fans, we certainly understand that the health concerns outweighed all other factors,” Red Wings President, CEO and COO Naomi Silver said. “It is unfortunate that at a time when baseball could have been a real source of healing, we have been unable to provide it for our community. But Red Wings baseball will persevere, and we look forward to next year when we can welcome our friends back to the ballpark.”
The International League, of which the Red Wings have been a member for a record 132 years, had staged a season every year since 1884 until 2020.
