In its efforts to sync up with the national push toward greater vaccination levels, Major League Baseball today announced that it’ll be joining other companies that are incentivizing new vaccinations against COVID-19.
Each of the 30 MLB Clubs will host at least one event in June where unvaccinated fans will be able to receive a free ticket to a game if they get a COVID-19 vaccination shot at the event. MLB Clubs will have the flexibility to construct the giveaway to their own specifications including where the event is hosted, when in June it takes place, and if the tickets and good for that day's game or a game later in the 2021 season.
The Dodgers are gearing up to go full capacity June 15th in the "re-opening" day but even then there are still advantages to having more and more folks vaccinated which includes fewer restrictions at the park, more comfort among fans, more activity outside/around the park before and after games.
