Lancaster JetHawks cease operations

Almost three months after not being noticed by the Colorado Rockies about not being part of the former parent club’s farm system, the Lancaster JetHawks are still waiting for being contacted by MLB.

After the club made a statement on December 10, 2021 about not being invited to any MLB club’s farm system, the club claimed to remain in contact with MLB about the opportunities. On February 26, 2021, the club came with this statement. Apparently, the club didn’t get any reaction whatsoever.

With no options to join affiliated ball, the webshop of the club closed for good on March 11. This can only mean that the club will cease operations.

Earlier today, this message could be found at the club’s webstore:

This really seems to be the confirmation the club will cease activities.

Unfortunately, despite telling they could be reached for questions, the JetHawks did not react to the questions the Dutch Baseball Hangout had. So it cannot be said for sure but it really seems like another club, next to the Staten Island Yankees, has become the victim of the money grab move by MLB.

After 25 years, (affiliated) baseball disappears from Lancaster. The club made it to the CAL League championship series five times (2004, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2017), winning it all in 2012 and 2014.
