There’s been no official word from Minor League Baseball on the status of the Northwest League this season. But with the scheduled start of the season less than three weeks away, Boise Hawks Vice President Bob Flannery anticipates an announcement of some sort soon, possibly in the form of a delay.

“There’s a lot of teams that are full season that were supposed to start in April,” Flannery told the Idaho Press on Thursday. “I remember reading a release right before their season was supposed to start, talking about a delay. So I would think that’s what they would do for our league, the Pioneer League, the New York-Penn League and the Appalachian League, the four short-season leagues. But we haven’t heard anything one way or another.”
