Due to the current state of Covid-19 outbreak, the 2020 Texas League Home Run Derby and All-Star Game that was set to be played in Amarillo has been canceled.
The All Star Event was supposed to take place at Hodgetown on June 22 and 23 and will be moved to the 2021 season.
Sod Poodles President and General Manager Tony Ensor said in a statement Friday that “We already have a tremendous plan in place to put on an incredible All-Star Game event for our community and to showcase the best of Amarillo to teams and their communities from all over the Texas League. While we are disappointed that we will not be hosting this season, we are already making plans to enhance the two-day event to make it bigger and better in 2021!”
Members of the Sod Poodles will be reaching out directly to those who purchased 2020 All-Star Game ticket bundles to provide additional information regarding purchases for the event.
