Toyota Field will be full of fans for the Trash Pandas home opener on May 11th.
The team's owner, Ralph Nelson, said the stadium will operate at 100% capacity.
According to Nelson, the team will need to follow the previously announced MLB rules to operate at full capacity. For fans, this means that masks must be worn at all times, except when eating. Additionally, there will be social distancing on all concession lines and in general admission areas. MLB rules also call for the creation of a players' bubble, which will separate the athletes and fans with a plexiglass buffer zone around dugouts and bullpens.
The stadium holds 7,500 people, but has never been permitted to allow that many people inside due to rules from the Alabama Department of Public Health.
The Trash Pandas start their season on May 4 in Chattanooga and will be back in the Rocket City on May 11 for their first home game.
