The health and safety of all Lookouts fans, staff and employees have been and will always be our top priority as an organization. The announcement by Minor League Baseball regarding the delayed start of the 2020 season was an important step in working together as an industry with community partners to combat the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Following guidelines from the CDC & the City of Chattanooga, AT&T Field will be closed to the public until further notice. Full-time employees are working remotely and can be contacted through email. This is a fluid, rapidly evolving situation and we want to assure you that we are taking concerns about the spread of this illness very seriously as we prepare for our 2020 season, even though we are not yet certain when it will begin.
