Help Save Baseball: A Message to our Fans

By High Point Rockers, 08/06/21, 10:00AM EDT


Relief Act would provide grants to eligible clubs

To our fans:

The High Point Rockers need your help. The COVID-19 pandemic hit us and other Atlantic League baseball teams hard as well as minor league teams throughout the country. As you know, the Rockers went more than 20 months without playing a game, and while we are thrilled to be playing ball this season, we are still reeling from the impact of the pandemic. Members of Congress from both parties in the House and Senate have introduced legislation to help keep Minor League Baseball alive.

The Minor League Baseball Relief Act would "repurpose already-appropriated COVID-19 relief funding for an emergency grant program to provide eligible clubs grants and assist with payroll costs, regular business expenses, and worker protection expenditures, among other things."

Please take one minute of your time to ask your representatives in Congress to support the Minor League Baseball Relief Act, which will ensure our survival. All you have to do is go here, type in your name and address, and a letter will be sent to your Members of Congress asking them to cosponsor this critical legislation. Please help us save Minor League Baseball.

Thank you for your support!

Pete Fisch, President

Christian Heimall, General Manager
