Corpus Christi Hooks open 2019 season

The Corpus Christi Hooks' 2020 season will be delayed.

The announcement follows Major League Baseball's decision to delay its season in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Minor League Baseball, which oversees Triple-A, Double-A and Single-A affiliates for major league teams, announced it would follow suit.

The MILB said it will reevaluate the start date of the 2020 season at a later time.

The MLB is the third sports league to make this kind of announcement; the NBA suspended their season Wednesday night after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19.

The NHL announced they will be suspending their season this morning.
