CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper Horseheads baseball team has ceased operations, the owners announced in a press release Thursday.

The team played four seasons at Mike Lansing Field in Casper, with a pause in 2020 due to COVID-19. The Horseheads were owned by Mayta and Chuck Heeman.

“We would like to thank the many people who have supported us since 2017, including our beloved game day staff members, interns, host families, season ticket holders, sponsors, and all the vendors, employees, players and coaches who have passed through Casper over our four full seasons,” Chuck Heeman said. “This decision did not come without great thought and analysis. The Horseheads fought through tough financial times in our first few years, as many small businesses do. We kept the business open through the 2020 pandemic and continued to run the best operation we could during the past two seasons. With some recent changes in our family and health situations, along with the financial burdens encountered in recovering from the 2020 shutdown, the decision has been made to discontinue.”
