The 2020 Baseball Ireland A League season was shortened to 9 weeks due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, and did not start until the first week of August.

After 3 weeks of the 2020 Baseball Ireland season, Ashbourne Giants were in top spot, with three wins from three, having defeated all other teams: Mariners Baseball 14-12, Dublin City Hurricanes 13-11 and Dublin Spartans 22-14.

Mariners Baseball were in second having picked up wins in weeks 2 and 3 over Dublin Spartans (5-2) and Dublin City Hurricanes (15-14). Dublin Spartans had got off the mark for 2020 with a 9-5 defeat of Dublin City Hurricanes in week 3 in the battle of the two winless teams.

By the end of August Ashbourne Giants had finally been defeated in a shock loss to Mariners, leaving them on 5-1, with the Mariners a game behind. Dublin City Hurricanes meanwhile had picked up their first win, a shock 7-3 win against Mariners Baseball, and then followed it up with a second victory over Dublin Spartans to move into third on 2-4.

The Mariners won the League Pennant with a 12-4 victory in the last game over Ashbourne Giants A, finishing on 7-2 and 21 Points to the Giants’ 6-3 and 18 Points. The Dublin Spartans finished on 6 Points (2-6) and the Dublin City Hurricanes on 4 (2-5 with one forfeit).
