T-Bones baseball in Kansas City, Kansas, has been postponed this season and will resume in 2021, according to an announcement today from the club.
The T-Bones’ new owners, who announced several improvements since taking over, will have to wait another season to begin playing baseball. A spokesman said they will continue to make improvements at the stadium in the meantime.
“We were excited for the opportunity to play baseball in 2020,” Mark Brandmeyer, T-Bones owner said. “Unfortunately, it will now take another year for our visions to be realized.
“We purchased the team to take the field – and we are still going to do that, just not on our original timeline. In the interim we will be preparing to host our team and fans in 2021 and will
continue making improvements to stadium infrastructure to enhance our game day experience,” he said.
In the T-Bones’ league, the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, half of the 12 teams will play a shortened season starting July 3. The T-Bones are not part of the group that will get to play this year.
Those teams were selected on geography, local COVID-19 restrictions and potential ability to return home based on the state’s phasing plan to reopen, according to a spokesman. All of the teams have locations north of the T-Bones.
Those who have purchased tickets for the 2020 season will either receive a complete refund or have the opportunity to apply their ticket purchase to the 2021 season, according to the spokesman.
