The Kannapolis Cannon Ballers announced today that they have entered into a ten-year agreement with the Chicago White Sox to be the White Sox Low-A affiliate in a new league with many of the same teams that previously made up the South Atlantic League.  This agreement provides for a continuation of the strong relationship between the White Sox and Temerity Baseball and ensures that Kannapolis fans will have the opportunity to experience top-notch Major League-affiliated baseball at Atrium Health Ballpark for many years to come.

“We are pleased that with this new long-term agreement with Major League Baseball and the White Sox, and soon-to-be-announced progress in stadium-adjacent development, Kannapolis is quickly moving towards becoming the vibrant downtown entertainment and commercial center that was envisioned by all stakeholders, notwithstanding COVID-19 related setbacks, including the loss of the 2020 baseball season,” said Temerity Baseball CEO Andy Sandler.

“We hope to announce a date for the first Cannon Ballers game at Atrium Health Ballpark very soon.  Never have I been more excited to hear an umpire bellow, ‘Play Ball,’” added Sandler.
