Florida State League cancels remainder of season

The Florida State League (A-Advanced) has announced it will cancel the remainder of the season, including the playoffs and championship series as it prepares for the impact of approaching Hurricane Dorian.

Florida State League logoIn a statement, the league said “This was a tough decision to make. The safety of our players, staff, umpires and fans are top priority to us. Team travel is also a great concern during hurricanes.”

The league is the second in the state of Florida to cancel the season because of the upcoming hurricane. Also, the Gulf Coast League (Rookie) decided to call it quits as a safety measure. This also includes the remainder of the regular season and the postseason.

There have been past instances in which the Florida State League has had to make scheduling changes because of major storms. In anticipation of Hurricane Irma, the league canceled its finals in 2017and declared the Palm Beach Cardinals and Dunedin Blue Jays co-champions. Also in 2004, the league declared the Tampa Yankees and the Daytona Cubs co-champions because of an approaching hurricane.

Three teams had already clinched a playoff spot: the Dunedin Blue Jays, the Fort Myers Miracle and the Charlotte StoneCrabs. The fourth team was still to be destined.
