2020 SEASON UPDATE
LINCOLN, Calif. – The Lincoln Potters are all set to play baseball this summer.
As of this release, the Potters will practice and play baseball without fans. Until otherwise specified, entrance to McBean Stadium for games will be limited to essential staff, which will consist of players, coaches, trainers, employees, interns, front office staff, scouts, and media members.
Potters players will begin to arrive this week and will start practicing Monday, June 22, in advance of the delayed 2020 season. The California Collegiate League voted to cancel the 2020 Season amidst the global pandemic, but several league members, including the Potters, are continuing on with an independent schedule.
“The Potters are committed to providing some much needed entertainment for the community this summer,” General Manager Matt Lundgren stated. “But at the same time, we need to be cognizant of the current situation and work towards creating the safest possible environment for our players, staff, and fans,” he added. “We have put together a detailed plan that will allow us to safely begin the season without fans and hopefully transition into allowing the public to attend in a limited capacity.”
The Potters remain hopeful that fans will be allowed in the near future, but that eventuality will be determined by state, county, and city officials.
In an effort to engage fans from a distance, the Potters will be offering an improved radio and video broadcast of each home game with Mark “Phantom” Lowe and Stones McCoy returning for another season as the voices of Potters baseball.
The Potters plan to release their updated independent schedule, as well as more detailed information regarding new stadium protocols, early next week with the first home game at McBean Stadium slated for Wednesday, July 1.
