The American Association independent baseball league, which includes the Rosemont-based Chicago Dogs, hopes to start its season in early July and complete an 80-game season that extends into late September, officials announced.

The timeline is subject to the ability to hold games in home markets while abiding by federal, state, provincial and municipal health orders and guidelines.


"The American Association looks forward to the day when we can safely reopen our stadiums to our fans and provide entertainment and social interaction," Commissioner Joshua Schaub said. "However, we will not jeopardize the safety of our fans, staff, players, umpires or vendors and will abide by all national and local restrictions when determining if we can open in early July."
