TinCaps to extend stadium capability – WISH-TV | Indianapolis Information | Indiana climate
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Another minor league baseball team in Indiana is adjusting its capacity limits in June. Fort Wayne TinCaps say capacity at Parkview Field will gradually increase to as high as 70% by the end of the month, and masks will no longer be needed in open air spaces.
The team says the decision was made after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Major League Baseball received updated guidelines.
The change in the form mandate takes effect immediately. TinCaps said all guests will continue to be required to wear masks, although guests who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be required to wear a mask in every interior area of Parkview Field.
Starting June 1st, the total capacity of the ballpark will increase to 40%. Parkview Field’s Legacy, Club, and All-Star seating areas will continue to be available in socially distant seat pods. However, the three reserved seating areas, the field box area and the suites in the stadium will be increased to 100% capacity.
As of June 29, total seating capacity will increase to 60-70%, while the Legacy, Club and All-Star seating areas will increase to nearly 100%, according to The TinCaps.
“Increasing capacity is not as easy as flipping a switch,” said Mike Nutter, president of the TinCaps team, in a press release. “We are applying the same amount and care to increasing the number of guests we can greet at the stadium as we did when we originally made our plan for the start of the season. We look forward to welcoming more fans soon, but we want to do so in a way that will enable us to bring them the great family entertainment experience that awaited them at Parkview Field. “
The team says the ballpark’s capacity is expected to “gradually increase” as the season lasts through September.
On Monday, the Indianapolis Indians announced that Victory Field’s capacity would increase to 50% in June. The South Bend Cubs have not provided any updates to stadium capacity limits.
