As the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancelation of high school spring sports, local seniors were faced with an abrupt ending to their high school careers. A group of these students were also athletes at the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota. This Rangers Academy Senior Spotlight series seeks to highlight those athletes who have worked on their craft at the Academy as they move into the next chapter in their lives.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our players, employees, and fans. Major League Baseball has suspended Spring Training and delayed the start of the regular season by at least two weeks due to the emergency created by the coronavirus epidemic. The Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex presented by Toyota will follow this guidance and suspend programming and field use indefinitely. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be in touch when the situation changes. We value our Academy athletes and families health and well-being and this decision was made with all in mind.
