Petition To Save 42 Minor League Baseball Franchises Gains Steam


A petition to save 42 minor league baseball franchises has gained local attention.  The Frederick Keys are affected by a potential MLB proposal to uproot a huge chunk of minor league franchises including the Keys. Since December 6th when I wrote an article on this situation negotiations are still ongoing and this proposal does not affect the 2020 season.  The Keys and the other teams mentioned in this proposal will play a full season slate in 2020. Current status of the negotiations are unknown. However it is possible this could be resolved preventing the Keys and other minor league teams from departing their home cities. If you would like to sign the petition please click here.
