SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Minor League Baseball notified the Salt Lake Bees that the 2021 Triple-A season has been delayed by four weeks.

The delayed start was announced on Wednesday, March 3.

Salt Lake will now start its season against the Reno Aces on Thursday, May 6.

The game will be played at Smith’s Ballpark in Salt Lake City.

In mid-February, the Bees announced their 2021 schedule. Salt Lake was originally scheduled to begin a 142-game slate on April 8.

Ball games that were scheduled for April will not be rescheduled.

The new schedule for Salt Lake consists of 120 games. 60 games will be played at home and the other half will take place on the road.
