2020 will go down as one of the oddest years ever. That includes sports, of course, and especially Major League Baseball, which will have 102 fewer games per team than normal. However, it may not be as weird if there are some fans at games, and that is actually a real possibility!
The team statement said it hopes to “allow a limited number of fans to attend 2020 home games at Coors Field.”
The team hasn’t defined what a “limited number of fans” might be considering the ballpark typically seats just over 50,000 people. All the team has said is that it is working with city and state health officials and Major League Baseball “to finalize a plan that adheres to strict protocols and ensures fan safety.”
A spokesman for the Mayor’s office said the Hancock administration has been working closely with the team and “if health conditions allow” acknowledged the Rockies hope to play with some fans in the stands.
There is no word on when a decision will be made, or exactly how ticketing will work, although speculation seems to point at season ticket holders getting first dibs on tickets.
