Fans will be allowed in attendance this season at Marlins Park.
The team announced they plan to allow fans at home games, although crowds will be limited to about 25% of capacity or about 9,300 people.
“We look forward to having the opportunity to have fans come back to our ballpark,” CEO Derek Jeter said Monday. “There will be a limited number of fans that are allowed at the onset. We hope those numbers increase throughout the course of the season, but the most important thing for us is to make sure everyone is healthy and safe.”
The Marlins, who made the playoffs last season, have averaged about 10,000 fans a game in 2018 and 2019, ranking last in the league. No fans will allowed at any baseball stadium in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“There is a level of excitement, and we need to continue to build on that, not only on the baseball side but on the business side as well,” Jeter said.
Marlins Pitchers and Catchers will report to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter on Wednesday.
