CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Corvallis Knights announced they are canceling the 2020 season due to COVID-19 measures. This comes one day after Gov. Kate Brown's orders prohibiting live-audience sporting events through September. 

While the team doesn't plan to return until 2021, they will still be active in community engagement. 

“These are clearly unprecedented times, and rough on us all. We want to be playing, to be entertaining, but it’s not meant to be this year,” said Corvallis Knights President Bre Miller said in the statement. “During this pause, it sure makes us appreciate how good we’ve had it. We feel like no one has it better. We set record after record last season, from wins to averaging 1,679 fans per game, and we did so thanks to our amazing fans, partners, players, coaches and staff. Summer Knights at Goss were magical, and they will be magical again.”

The team has been in contact with season ticket holders about possible refund options. 

"Corvallis has got a rich history with baseball," Knight Baseball Club, Inc. CEO Dan Segal said. "That community loves getting over to Goss Stadium. It's something they look forward to. They were ready. I would say its a very baseball hungry community and we will back and hopefully better. We're just going to stay really positive."

The Knights were looking to win a fifth straight West Coast League championship.
