London Series Has Fallen Down

Uncategorized

I received this from MLB just now:

Dear MLB fan,

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mitel & MLB Present London Series 2020 has been cancelled.

The decision has been taken in line with the UK Government’s actions stopping public gatherings and the need to focus emergency services resources on combating the pandemic.

While we understand that this news is disappointing, we are faced with an unprecedented situation worldwide and nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our players, employees and fans.

We send our best wishes to all individuals and communities that have been impacted by COVID-19.

Ticket holders will receive a full refund, including any ticketing service charges paid.
Further information and FAQs can be found here.

While there is nothing like watching the Cubs at Wrigley, there is something special about sitting in the stands at an opponent’s ballpark and wearing a Cubs jersey, representing our favorite team on the road.

Up until now, I have had the good fortune of seeing the Cubs play on the road in New York, Baltimore, Washington DC and Philadelphia. My family and I were looking forward to adding London to the list this year. Unfortunately, due to worldwide pandemic virus you’ll find in your program listed as COVID-19, the games have been canceled and our trip has gone down with it.

My mother-in-law is from England and this trip was going to be the perfect opportunity to take her back, see the sights, introduce my kids to the UK and see our favorite baseball team play their greatest rivals overseas in a city not many will get to say they have seen the team play.

We are all very much disappointed but understand considering the circumstances. Still, it would have been a lot of fun. Baseball will be back ASAP – but June was just too soon.
Stay safe, stay inside, wash your hands and go Cubs go.
