Pioneer League Announces 2021 Season Schedule
This is a promising sign of baseball returning to Montana and closer to us having more fun during the summer.
406 MT Sports is reporting that the Pioneer League, which has three Montana teams in their league, announced their full plans for a ninety-six game season starting May 22nd.
The Billings Mustangs, Missoula Paddleheads, and Great Falls Voyagers were some of the many teams cut from the MLB's minor league baseball system and the teams dediced to band together and become an independent league that is partnered with Major League Baseball.
This is exciting because each team is planned to play 48 of their 96 games at home, so this has the potential to become a very exciting year to go watch professional baseball in Montana. They haven't announced how attendance will work yet but I bet they are planning on having fans in the stands to enjoy these baseball games.
One of my favorite times of the summer is being able to go see minor league baseball or now semi professional baseball around Montana. Great Falls, Missoula and Billings have huge baseball communities and their stadiums are absolutely a blast to go to. Nothing is better during the summer than going with friends or family and going to the ballpark and eating a hotdog and watching a ball game.
The season is going to go along as planned but there might be some changes if anything happens with COVID-19 but they are planning on hosting a full 96 game season and that is exciting for baseball fans inn Montana.
