The Daytona Tortugas are excited to welcome fans back to Jackie Robinson Ballpark for the 2021 season and want to let fans know what to expect.
As always, the Tortugas have made health and safety the highest priority in developing a plan for the return of fans to the Jack. These plans meet the requirements and regulations of the Volusia County Health Department and Major League Baseball.
The following safety guidelines will be in place when the Tortugas begin Daytona Beach’s second century of professional baseball on Tuesday, May 11 at 7:05 p.m. against the St. Lucie Mets (NY Mets). Please help us adhere to these so we can continue to invite fans to our games throughout the 2021 season.
· Face Masks: Face masks must be worn at all times by all fans over the age of two. Masks may be removed briefly when fans are actively eating or drinking while seated in their assigned seat. Major League Baseball’s mask mandate includes all Minor League stadiums, regardless of local, state, or federal guidelines.
· Bags: To reduce in-person contact and maximize safety for fans and staff, backpacks will not be permitted to be brought into Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The only exceptions to this are for clear bags as well as medical or diaper bags.
· Social Distancing: Physical distancing will be enforced in seating areas, on the concourse, in concession lines, the Shell Shack, and at all entrances and exits.
· Multiple Entrances & Exits: All three entry gates will be open to expedite the process and limit crowding at any one entrance. In weather delay situations, fans will be permitted to return to their cars during the delay and allowed to re-enter the stadium when the game resumes preventing crowding on the stadium’s concourse.
· No Player Contact: No contact will be permitted between players and fans, including for autograph requests. Fans will not be allowed to gather near the dugouts, bullpens, or other areas near the players.
· Enhanced Sanitation: Daytona Tortugas staff will frequently clean, disinfect, sanitize, and monitor common-touch surfaces and high-use guest areas frequently and consistently throughout games. Hand sanitizer will be available to fans in multiple locations throughout the stadium.
All safety guidelines are subject to change. Please stay tuned to www.daytonatortugas.com for updates regarding this information.
