While Major League Baseball prepares to return in July, the State College Spikes will be without a baseball season in 2020.
As baseball continues to finalize a plan to return, the State College Spikes will use innovative methods to connect with the State College community.
The State College Borough Council voted unanimously to support the “Save our Spikes” campaign as the team is in danger of losing its major league affiliation after the 2020 season.
In November of 2019, a list was released by Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred that named over 40 minor league baseball organizations that were in jeopardy of losing their status in baseball.
For their final game, the State College Spikes have decided to donate a portion of the profit they make from ticket sales to Penn State THON. This is the 11th year in a row that the team has had this promotion.
The State College Spikes would fall behind by eight runs twice, yet force extras in a losing battle to the Auburn Doubledays on Military Appreciation Night.
