Hub City Hotshots acting owner and Expedition League commissioner Steve Wagner has announced the Hot Shots will suspend operations for the 2020 season. The announcement was made in a letter written to the City of Aberdeen. Wagner took over the Hot Shots as owner during the 2019 schedule, citing neglect on the part of the team’s original owners Chuck and Mayra Heeman. The Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Board also announced it has terminated its contract with the Hot Shots for use of Fossum Field and concession stands operations. The Hardball Association is currently owed about $13,000 in rental fees.
