USA Softball team won’t be coming to the valley this summer

USA Softball has announced the cancellation of all originally scheduled 2020 stops on the “Stand Beside Her” tour, presented by Major League Baseball, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, including the highly anticipated June 25 exhibition contest, featuring the 2020 U.S. Olympic Softball Team, at Billy Sample Field in Salem.

“We are extremely disappointed that a sell-out crowd will not be able to witness these athletes in action this June, but deep down we understand the need to make this decision now,” says John Shaner, Salem Parks and Recreation Director. “If there is any possible way to get this game back in Salem next summer, we will do our best to make it happen.”

As for ticket refunds, all tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will automatically be refunded to the card on which they were purchased. Any tickets purchased through the Salem Civic Center Box Office will be refunded to customers once the Salem Civic Center reopens to the public.
