MEDFORD, Ore. — While the Golden State Collegiate Baseball League is canceling its 2020 season, the Medford Rogues are still looking at ways to keep the baseball season alive in Southern Oregon.

The GCSBL announced Friday that the teams of the league and league board members voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 season. The safety and health of "players, coaches, families, staff members and fans" were cited as the most important factors in their decision.

While the GCSBL season will not be happening, the Medford Rogues plan to look at other ways they can bring baseball to the Rogue Valley. The team has reportedly garnered interest from independent baseball programs along the West Coast. Games won't start, however, until state and local governments deem it safe enough to hold events.

"We want to give ourselves every opportunity to provide entertainment for our community after the restrictions set forth get lifted," Dave May, general manager of the Medford Rogues, said in a press release. "We are looking forward to returning stronger and better than before."

For the Rogues, they said they remain committed to providing a safe and fun season of baseball, but must also weigh the health and safety of its players and their host families along with front office staff and the community as a whole.

The Rogues press release said there are two contingency plans for the 2020 season. It also laid out two potential opening day dates: June 18 and July 1.

Opening day for the team was originally scheduled for May 28, 2020. The potential schedule of independent teams will "include teams at the same level of play."
