Due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances at the league level, the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL) will no longer have a team in the Mahoning Valley for the 2015 season. The team was set to play three games at Eastwood Field beginning Oct. 3.
“We are extremely disappointed that the FXFL has made the decision to cease operation of the Mahoning Valley Brawlers,” Jordan Taylor, vice president HWS Baseball said. “Our organization has worked extremely hard over the last six months to develop and promote this new and exciting venture and we were confident that the Brawlers would have been successful in this market based on the immediate support we received from sponsors and the community. It is unfortunate the league has run into recent financial and budgetary issues that has caused this course of action.”
All purchased tickets will be refunded at the Mahoning Valley Scrappers front office beginning Thursday, Oct. 1 at 10 a.m.
