OKC Dodgers Announce Capacity Increase and Special Promotions for May and June Games
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Dodgers and Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark will now open the 2021 baseball season at 50 percent capacity after recent consultations with the Oklahoma City-County Health Department regarding health and safety protocols.
The ballpark was originally slated to open at 30 percent capacity during May and June games for 2021 OKC Dodgers games, but positive strides in COVID-19 infection, hospitalization and vaccination rates throughout the Oklahoma City area permitted the increase.
Additionally, the OKC Dodgers will host their first-ever Bark in the Park presented by Camp Bow Wow in June while fan-favorite weekly promotions like Fireworks Fridays and $2 Tuesdays kick off the 2021 baseball season in May.
Limited single-game tickets are available now in seating pods of two, three, four, five or six seats, with each pod distanced three feet from each other. Over the past several months, the Dodgers have worked closely with OCCHD and followed guidance from Major League Baseball to establish rules and regulations to keep fans safe while attending Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Masks will be required while at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, electronic tickets will be utilized and a clear bag policy will be enforced. A full list of health and safety regulations can be found at okcdodgers.com/safety.
The OKC Dodgers open the home portion of their 2021 schedule at 7:05 p.m. Thursday, May 13 against the Sacramento River Cats at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and fireworks are scheduled to follow the game on Opening Night. The Dodgers' Triple-A West schedule features 18 home games in May and June combined.
