Just as the Governor ordered face-masks to be worn in every city with more than 20 confirmed Covid-19 cases, we learned hours later that the virus has shut down baseball in Frisco.
After their 2-1 loss to the Tulsa Drillers in Tulsa at ONEOK Field, the RoughRiders issued a statement.

As disappointed as we are, the is the right decision made by the RoughRiders. The most important thing is the recovery of the staff members. As much as we want baseball right now, it is secondary.
As of now this home series is canceled and the next is going to be closed to the public – if it is played at Dr Pepper Ballpark. The RoughRiders are in discussion with TCL to see if any of the remaining games can be salvaged but this may be the end of baseball in Frisco this year. As the statement says, the Riders staff will be in contact with fans to discuss ticketing options/refunds.
In reviewing the statement by TCL any remaining games played in the DFW area will be without fans in the stands.
As always we will keep up updated with any new developments.
