No Lookouts Baseball This Year As Minor League Baseball Cancels The Season

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

There will not be any Chattanooga Lookouts baseball this season as AT&T Field stands idle due to the coronavirus.

Lookouts President Rich Mozingo said, "We've got 300 employees who count on Lookouts baseball every year, and we've got a quarter of a million fans who come out. So it is sad when you realize something like this isn't going to happen at all this summer, it really does hit home. It's a tough day for all of us."

Minor League baseball canceled the season, which was suppose to start in early April, saying the Major League clubs would not be furnishing players.

Major League baseball is planning a short season of its own.

The Lookouts are suing an insurance firm, saying it should have paid off on its business interruption policy to cover its heavy losses due to the lost season.
