Alaska Baseball League cancels upcoming summer season

    Anchorage, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Baseball League has canceled its summer season, as the future of sports worldwide remains uncertain during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The summer league season was scheduled to begin on June 29.

    The league website says this season will be canceled to keep everyone safe from exposure to COVID-19.

    If competition resumed on time there would have been travel and housing challenges during the seven weeks of play.

    The five-team league is made up of college players from mostly the Lower 48 but also from places as far away as Taiwan.
