The New Hampshire Fisher Cats season was originally scheduled to begin on April 9, but was postponed indefinitely based on state and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19.

Season-ticket holders, mini-plan holders, and fans who booked groups, suites, and other hospitality nights in 2020 will automatically receive a 125 percent credit on their deposit to be used toward the 2021 season. Single-game tickets from the 2020 season can be redeemed for any Fisher Cats home game in 2021.

“We’ve remained optimistic throughout this process and done everything we can to prepare for the 2020 season, so today’s news is difficult to hear,” Fisher Cats president Mike Ramshaw said. “But fan safety is our top priority, and we’ve already begun hosting safe, socially distanced events to make Delta Dental Stadium available to our community this summer. As we get through these difficult times together, I’m confident Fisher Cats baseball will be back and better than ever in 2021.”

This will be New Hampshire’s first season without Fisher Cats baseball in 17 years, during which time the team has won three Eastern League championships, sent 125 players to the major leagues, hosted over 5 million fans, and generated nearly $6 million in monetary and in-kind donations to local charities.

The Fisher Cats front office is currently closed to the public, but staff members are working to contact fans about their current ticket packages.
