RAPID CITY, SD – The Expedition League, home league of the Fremont Moo, announced Wednesday that its 2020 season will begin on Friday June 26, 2020 with a 52-game schedule.
The regular season will end on Wednesday August 19, 2020, and the winner of the Lewis Division’s regular season will battle the Clark Division’s regular season winner in a best-of-three Expedition League Championship Series August 21-23.
Six of the Expedition League’s ten teams will participate in the 2020 season – Badlands Big Sticks, Fremont Moo, Hastings Sodbusters, Pierre Trappers, Souris Valley Sabre Dogs, and Western Nebraska Pioneers. Due to various restrictions and guidelines still in place, four teams – Casper Horseheads, Sioux Falls Sunfish, Spearfish Sasquatch, and Wheat City Whiskey Jacks – will not be able to participate in the 2020 Expedition League season, but these four teams will be back strong for the 2021 campaign.
“We’re thrilled to once again have our outstanding brand of baseball and fun in the six great communities where Expedition League baseball will be played this summer,” noted Expedition League President Steve Wagner. “We have worked closely with state, county, and local officials on readiness plans, which will allow us to play our season safely and in compliance with all guidelines.”
“I’ve been hearing from fans, corporate partners, and community leaders all spring about how much they love Expedition League baseball in their communities and what our teams mean to them,” Wagner continued. “Folks have been chomping at the bit for us to get started and we’re blessed to be able to play our 2020 season. We love serving our fans and our communities with not only the fun, exciting family entertainment value that our communities have come to expect from us, but also in the many ways that Expedition League teams give back to our outstanding communities.”
The Expedition League’s revised 2020 52-game schedule will be released shortly and tickets to all games can be purchased on the Teams’ websites. You can view the Fremont Moo’s website at http://fremontmooex.pointstreaksites.com/view/fremontmooex/
