Benched: No Aquasox Baseball In Everett, Washington This Summer

Sad news for baseball fans in Everett, Washington as Minor League Baseball officially cancels the season.

Pandemic forces a surmmer tradition to take a break.

On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, Major League Baseball (MLB) informed Minor League Baseball (MiLB) that it will not be providing its affiliated MiLB teams with players for the 2020 season. As a result, there will not be a MiLB season. This announcement officially cancels the 2020 AquaSox season and marks the first MiLB season to be canceled since its inception in 1901.

“We hoped baseball would return to Funko Field this summer, but as time progressed, the season became less likely,” said AquaSox General Manager Danny Tetzlaff. “The continued health and safety of our fans, employees, players and the entire AquaSox baseball community is our top priority. As always, we will continue to support our community during this challenging time and look forward to having AquaSox baseball back at Funko Field in 2021.”

Funko Field at Everett Memorial Stadium has been home to professional baseball every summer since the Everett Giants’ first season in 1984. While the stands will remain empty for the time being, the AquaSox are looking into innovative ways to connect with fans this summer. Ballpark events will only be held if proper health and safety protocols can be met.

The AquaSox are grateful for the support they have received from the Everett community over the past couple of months. Ticket plan holders, corporate partners and group outing leaders can expect to hear from their representatives to discuss their options moving forward.
