February 18, 2021 - Triple-A East League (AAA East) - Toledo Mud Hens News Release

TOLEDO, OH-- The sights. The sounds. The fun nights at the ballpark. You come and cheer. You come and laugh. You come and make memories. America's favorite pastime returns to Fifth Third Field on Tuesday, April 6 for the first time since 2019.

Welcome Back Toledo.

The 19th season begins at home with a six-game series against the Omaha Storm Chasers. Toledo will play 24 series and 142 games broken into 12 homestands and 12 road trips. All series are six games except one 4-game short-week (Thursday, July 15-Sunday, July 18), and Mondays are a universal off-day.

The Mud Hens will play 70 games at Fifth Third Field. Thirty-six (36) are weekend dates (Friday-12, Saturday-12, Sunday-12), including the 4th of July. The Mud Hens final home series runs September 14 - September 19 against the Columbus Clippers.

As part of MLB's realignment, the Triple-A East is made up of 20 teams spread across three divisions. Toledo is in the Midwest and will play their usual foes, Louisville, Indianapolis, and Columbus as well as Iowa, Omaha, St. Paul, Memphis, and Nashville.


Fifth Third Field will open to limited capacity as we follow all the latest health and safety guidelines from the State of Ohio and Major League Baseball. Each year, more than 500,000 people attend Mud Hens games. This year, under current guidelines, there will only be 106,500 tickets available for the season or just 1,500 per game.


Due to the very limited number of tickets available for each game, the Mud Hens will prioritize tickets to the following groups.

First group: Flock Members

Second Group: Ticket holders with 2020 season credits and individuals that put down a deposit.

Third Group: General Public
