Welcome to Segra Park, home of your Columbia Fireflies! As you plan your trip to Segra Park for either an event or a Fireflies game, please check out the alphabetical guide regarding stadium information and policies below. If you have any questions about any of the below policies, or your questions were not answered below, you can contact the Fireflies Front Office by calling 803-726-4487 or emailing the Fireflies at [email protected].
Segra Park is located in downtown Columbia, South Carolina. The address is: 1640 Freed Street, Columbia, SC 29201.
No alcoholic beverages may be brought into Segra Park. South Carolina law prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21. Therefore, guests will be required to show proper identification and proof of age to receive a wristband before purchasing or consuming alcoholic beverages at Segra Park. All sales of alcohol will cease in the middle of the 8th inning (sales may be cut off earlier at the discretion of Segra Park management). Only two alcoholic beverages are allowed per person, per purchase. Guests may not take any alcoholic beverages out of the ballpark. Alcohol consumption is prohibited in the parking lots.

Batting practice times vary based on home and visiting team schedules. On most days, batting practice will conclude prior to the opening of the Segra gates (1 hour before game time).
Beginning in 2021 and moving forward, Segra Park will become a cashless facility. Eliminating the exchange of cash limits person to person contact and keeps all Fireflies fans and staff members safe. All major credit cards will be accepted at every point of sale at Segra Park, including at the Box Office, at the Mason Jar Team Store, in the parking lots and at all concession stands.
Fans who bring cash will, at any point during the game, be able to convert that into Fireflies Gift Cards at Guest Services, which is located on the concourse behind home plate. Gift Cards will be available in increments of $5 and will not have an expiration date.
CLEAR BAG POLICY
The Fireflies Clear Bag Policy closely matches those already in place at all NFL stadiums and many NCAA sporting events. This policy also closely matches the policy in place for all Gamecock sporting events and concerts at Colonial Life Arena. Under the policy, each fan is allowed to bring one clear bag into Segra Park. Backpacks and diaper bags are NOT permitted inside Segra Park. Please click HERE to see the full list of permitted and non-permitted items plus other restrictions. The Clear Bag Policy is in place to provide a safer environment at events and should significantly expedite fan entry into Segra Park.
COOLERS, CONTAINERS & OUTSIDE FOOD AND BEVERAGE
In accordance with Major League Baseball guidelines, outside food, beverages and containers are prohibited from Segra Park. Exceptions will be allowed for infants and for those people with special dietary needs. All bags are subject to search.
Segra Park has four main concession stands located around the main concourse, serving traditional ballpark favorites including hot dogs, burgers and more. Multiple specialty carts are spaced throughout the concourse, including Low-N-Slow BBQ, El Toro’s, the Philly Cart and Juanathan’s Street Tacos. Specialty food carts also feature Ice Cream, Popcorn, Dippin’ Dots and fresh funnel cake. There are three full-service bars at the stadium, including the Budweiser Bowtie Bar in Centerfield. Segra Park also boasts a variety of great domestic and craft beers (more than 50 choices nightly), featuring both local, regional and national craft favorites from River Rat, Sweetwater, Columbia Craft, Elysian and more.
To enhance convenience and reduce the amount of people and time spent in concession lines, fans will now be able to order and purchase concessions from their seats on any mobile device. In premium seating sections including Club Seats, Bullpen Boxes and Scout Seats, the service will allow fans to order food and have it brought directly to them by Fireflies staff. In all other seating sections, fans will be able to order from their seat and will get a notification on their phone when their food is ready to be picked-up at a designated concession stand. More information about this web-based service and the ordering process will be released closer to the start of the season.
All Fireflies employees will be required to wear a mask at all times and any employees handling food will wear plastic gloves. To minimize the number of persons who come into close proximity to food, buffets in large group areas will be served by Fireflies employees wearing gloves and masks.

EXTRA INNINGS RULE
Minor League Baseball announced rule and procedure changes in 2018 aimed at reducing the length of extra innings and mound visits during a game. At all levels, extra innings will begin with a runner on second base. The runner at second base will be the player in the batting order previous to the lead off batter of the inning. For purposes of calculating earned runs under Rule 9.16, the runner who begins an inning on second base pursuant to this rule shall be deemed to be a runner who has reached second base because of a fielding error, but no error shall be charged to the opposing team or to any player.
For the safety and enjoyment of all guests and players, interference with a ball in play or trespassing onto the playing field is prohibited.
The Fireflies contract with Richland County EMS to provide first aid at all Columbia Fireflies games. In the event that you or someone in your party requires medical attention, please report to Guest Services (located on the concourse level behind home plate) or notify a member of the Fireflies staff, security officers or uniformed officers from the Columbia Police Department.
