Start of season delayed for El Paso Chihuahuas, all of Minor League Baseball


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The Minor League Baseball season is the latest to delay the start of the season due to the coronavirus.

MiLB made the announcement Thursday afternoon in a tweet:

“They have not given us a definitive timeline for potentially opening the season, ” said Chihuahuas general manager Brad Taylor. “April 9 is the day that MLB is supposed to start and that is also the day MiLB is supposed to start if everything goes perfect. We’re slated to open on the road. Our first home game is not supposed to be until April 14, but that is obviously now potentially different.”

As of Thursday night, the Padres and Chihuahuas were still at Spring Training in Arizona.
