Man this news really is a bummer, I have said it before many many times that in my short year here living in Quincy that going to the Gems games last Summer was my favorite part of the Summer. When I lived in Chicago, I lived a 10 minute walk from Wrigley Field, and baseball in the Summer time is perfection. Unfortunately I cant say that I am too shocked by this news but it certainly doesn't make it any easier to hear. I for one am already excited for the Gems to be back in 2021, enjoying those great deals on Gempire Nights!
