The Grand Lake Mariners will not have a season.
Late Tuesday evening, the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League announced that it was canceling its season amid ongoing coronavirus concerns.
"We are truly disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to provide our community with much-needed stress relief and entertainment for the summer of 2020," wrote Grand Lake General Manager John Dorner in a press release. "The Mariner Family would like to thank all of the individuals and businesses that continue to give us their support each and every year. In appreciation, all of our 2020 sponsors will receive the same sponsorship support package for the 2021 season, with no additional costs to those sponsors in 2021. We would also like to thank our host families, volunteers and everyone else who have helped make the Grand Lake Mariners the proud organization it has become over the past 30 plus seasons."
The Mariners plan to return next season. All fans who have purchased a season pass for the 2020 season will receive a 2021 pass in the mail, along with a Mariners Koozie and Five Mariners Bucks (good for use at the Grand Lake Concession and Memorabilia Stands in 2021). These items will be mailed out in approximately one month. Any fans wishing to order 2021 regular-season passes (including the free Koozie and Mariner Bucks) can do so until June 1, 2020. To take advantage of this limited time offer, mail your name, phone number, address and a check for the season pass you wish to order:
