Hot Shots suspend operations for 2020 season

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – The Hub City Hot Shots will suspend operations for the 2020 season. The move was announced by Expedition League Commissioner and Hot Shots acting owner Steve Wagner on Wednesday.

In addition, the Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Board has announced that it will terminate the contract with the Hot Shots for use of Fossum Field and its concessions.

The Hot Shots have been in existence since 2018. They ran into financial trouble this past season and Wagner took over as owner, citing neglect from original owners Chuck and Mayra Heeman. The Aberdeen Hardball Association is still owed approximately $13,000 in rental fees.
