COVID-19 and travel restrictions related to the pandemic have been blamed for the cancellations, although the WBSC insisted in a statement that its had “worked until the very last minute to determine if playing these events was viable for all parties involved”.
Both tournaments were due to be held in Tijuana, which is in Baja California.
