It remains to be seen whether Midwest League teams will play games this year, but one thing that definitively won’t happen is a 2020 MWL All-Star Game.
It was announced Tuesday that the 2020 All-Star Game will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has halted sports since late March. The game was scheduled to be played in Bowling Green this year; the Hot Rods will host the 2021 MWL All-Star Game instead.
This will be the first year since 1965 that a MWL All-Star Game is not played.
Next year’s All-Star Game is scheduled for Tuesday, June 22, 2021, with a Home Run Derby taking place one day earlier.
The Hot Rods have said they will honor all tickets purchased for the 2020 All-Star Game and related events at comparable events next year. The club is also offering a refund option for fans and intends to reach out to individual ticket buyers with both options. Fans who want a refund will receive it in the manner they paid (check, credit card, etc.).
