Mexican Summer League Cancels Season

They talked about having a season with no foreigners on the rosters. Only players of Mexican descent could play. This would cut down costs in a year when they did not know if they could allow fans. Like the minor leagues, the Mexican Summer League teams have no television revenue. So each game they played was like eating cash. There was no revenue stream.

When the minor leagues cancelled their season on Tuesday it only followed suit that the Mexican Summer League announced to cancel their season. They had a tentative start date of August 7. It will be interesting how the finances of each of the 16 teams add up. The minor leagues are concerned a number of their franchises will fold next year because of an empty revenue stream yet still expenses cropping up. The Mexican League will face the same challenges.
