Generals cancel two preseason events due to COVID-19 concerns

Team still plans to play exhibitions this weekend

VICTORIA, Texas — The Victoria Generals are canceling both of their planned preseason games at Riverside Stadium the next two nights.

The team was scheduled to play an intrasquad game on Tuesday, followed by an exhibition with the Kyle Chapman All-Stars on Wednesday. Generals GM Mike Yokum said the schedule changes were made to minimize risk amid rising COVID-19 numbers in the Crossroads, and not a positive test from the organization.

Yokum added that the team’s two preseason games scheduled for this weekend are still planned to be played. The Generals will take on the All-Stars on Saturday at 6:00 pm, and Test Baseball from San Antonio on Sunday at 7:00 pm.

The team’s regular season home opener is scheduled for July 3rd.
