The Clinton Herald started this petition to Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball (MLB) has proposed to eliminate 42 Minor League Baseball (MiLB) teams nationwide – starting with the 2021 season.  These teams include our very own Clinton LumberKings, as well as the Quad Cities River Bandits and the Burlington Bees.

There are no MLB teams in Iowa and the closest MLB team is a three hour drive away.  The nearest that most of us get to MLB is watching it on television. The value of our LumberKings is unmeasurable. Clinton and the surrounding area has been shaped by the baseball teams that have played here since 1937.  Lasting memories and friendships created all strengthen our love for our hometown team. More importantly, having the LumberKings in Clinton raises the overall well-being of our city and those around us. 

We need to show that our LumberKings are worth fighting for!  Sign our petition today and let your voice be heard. We will be sending each signature to MLB by May 1, 2020.
