CREDENTIALS: Anyone requesting credentials during the 2021 season will be required to read and sign Major League Baseball’s 2021 Season Release of Liability before applications will be reviewed or approved. Credentialed members of the media will be required to follow all health and safety guidelines enacted at The Diamond. Credential requests can be submitted at SquirrelsBaseball.com/Pressbox.
FULL-SEASON CREDENTIALS: With limited spacing available for media due to social distancing protocols, full-season credentials will only be issued to members of the media and legitimate newsgathering organizations who cover the Flying Squirrels on a daily basis. Full-season credentials will be available for pick-up at the Flying Squirrels offices prior to Opening Day. Other members of the media and organizations can apply for single-game or daily credentials, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
DAILY CREDENTIALS: Daily or single-game credentials will be issued to individuals or organizations who do not qualify for full-season credentials, including freelance writers and weekly or monthly publications, based on availability. Daily credentials will also be issued to radio and TV stations when the need arises for extra pre- or post-game personnel and to newspaper reporters providing extra covering, based on availability. Credential applications should be received by the Flying Squirrels Communications Department no less than 24 hours prior to the requested game. Requests can be made online through the Flying Squirrels media credential application form at SquirrelsBaseball.com/Pressbox. Once approved, daily credentials can be picked up at the Flying Squirrels Will Call booth located at the main entrance of the ballpark on Arthur Ashe Boulevard (TIME).
OTHER CREDENTIALS: The Flying Squirrels will honor credentials from the San Francisco Giants, Major League Baseball and the Baseball Writers Association of America based on availability. Any media member who intends to attend a game using these credentials should reach out to the Flying Squirrels Communications Department no less than 24 hours in advance of that game.
VIDEO PHOTOGRAPHERS: Photographers from television stations will be able to shoot games from the platform on the main concourse behind home plate. Spacing is limited to three video photographers per game, and priority will be given to those with full-season credentials who cover the team on a daily basis.
STILL PHOTOGRAPHERS: Still photographers will be able to shoot from predetermined areas arranged with the Flying Squirrels Communications Department prior to each game. Still photographers will not be permitted to enter the playing field or dugout photo areas. Photographers may move around portions of the seating bowl during games; however, they must maintain a six-foot “buffer zone” between themselves and the playing field at all times.
PARKING: Media members holding season credentials are permitted to park in the media parking area in the Red Lot at The Diamond. Your credential will also serve as your parking pass to gain admission to the lot.
ENTERING THE BALLPARK: For the 2021 season, we ask that members of the media enter the stadium through the “Staff & Media” entrance, located at the ballpark’s main gates and identified by a blue sign. All approved media members will be subject to club discretion and its standards and policies that will govern entry, which are described in Minor League Baseball’s 2021 Operations Manual. Clubs may begin to allow media into the ballpark no more than four hours prior to first pitch. Media must leave the ballpark no later than 90 minutes following the conclusion of postgame interviews.
RESTRICTED AREAS: Per MLB guidelines, approved media members will not be permitted in Restricted Areas or in close proximity to players, coaches and field staff. The Restricted Areas include clubhouses, locker rooms, playing fields, dugouts, training rooms, weight rooms, interview rooms and any route inside the ballpark/facility utilized by players, coaches and field staff.
PLAYER AND COACH INTERVIEWS: All manager, player and field staff personnel interviews will be conducted via Zoom video conferencing or over the phone. Media members will not have direct access to the manager, players or members of the field staff. All interview requests must be requested through the Flying Squirrels Communications Department. Off-site interviews will not be permitted. Interview requests do not guarantee availability. This policy is subject to ongoing review by Major League Baseball and its Clubs, based on the advice of medical experts and the applicable local guidance in the host city to determine when and if it would be feasible to introduce in-person, physically distanced interviews or press conferences. No one will be permitted to interview starting pitchers prior to a game on the day of their start.
LIVE BROADCASTS AND STREAMING: In accordance with Major League Baseball rules, unauthorized live broadcasting and streaming of in-game action via social media or any other platform is prohibited.
FOLLOWING HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES: By receiving a media credential, a media member agrees to observe all MLB, MiLB and Club rules; any applicable government orders in a local market; and other precautionary steps that are in place to preserve health and safety. Media members must wear face coverings at all times, covering their nose and mouth, and practice physical distancing while present at a Club facility (whether indoors or outdoors). Media members should bring their own face coverings to the ballpark, but Clubs are permitted to provide face coverings to media upon request. Clubs are permitted to require a media member to use a Club-provided face covering if the Club determines that the media member’s personal face covering is inappropriate for any reason. Failure to comply with any health and safety initiatives will result in a loss of access to the ballpark.
