No Lansing Lugnuts Baseball For Now
What's summer without Lansing Lugnuts baseball? I don't know about you but I really miss going to Cooley Law School Stadium to watch the Lansing Lugnuts. Baseball, ice cold beer, hamburgers, hotdogs, you get the picture.
According to the Lansing State Journal, many things have been lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. For example: 70 summer nights of Lansing Lugnuts baseball along with 250,000 printed pocket schedules gone to waste.
Now we have to wait it all out; how long will it be before we can go back into Cooley Law School Stadium to watch a baseball game? At this point, there's is no possible answer.
Lugnuts owner Tom Dickson said, "you saw how hard it's been for Major League baseball to get going again. To think they're going to be able to send 25 players out to 160 minor league markets, it's just not practical."
The Lugnuts season that never began only has two months left anyway. Dickson and the Lugnuts are moving on, hoping to salvage what they can of the summer with other events at the ballpark, which they hope to announce this week.
Dickson also said, the Lugnuts aren't going anywhere. The Lugnuts weren't one of the 42 minor league clubs slated to be eliminated in a cost cutting proposal put forth before the pandemic. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
