"Growing Optimism" That California Teams Will Have Some Fans Opening Day


It has been since October of 2019 that fans were allowed in at Dodger Stadium. Could we see some for opening day.

The Dodgers are working with the governor’s office and local public health officials on proposals that call for Dodger Stadium to operate at limited capacity at the start of the season according to Stan Kasten.

“I hope, by opening day, we are finally going to have some fans in the park,” Kasten said in the video. “I don’t think it will be a full stadium just yet. But I do believe sometime during this season, the way things are looking, we will have a full stadium again.”

The proposal could require the state to modify its current guidance, which allows a team to sell to 20% capacity if its county is in the orange tier, indicating moderate spread of the coronavirus, and 25% capacity if the county is in the yellow tier.

Kasten said he is looking forward to welcoming fans back to the ballpark this season.
