The Tennessee Smokies were due to host games 1 and 2 Monday and Tuesday night at Smokies Park and the series was due to swing back to Mobile for games three, four and five, as necessary.
The championship series cancellation is just the second in the history of the Southern League. Huntsville and Jacksonville were named co-champions in 2001 due to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
