Major League Baseball fans will be able to attend a game for the first time this season in Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. The stadium will open its gates for a limited number of attendees at the National League Championship Series (NLCS) and World Series.
Game 1 of the NLCS is set for Oct. 12. MLB and the Texas Rangers are putting about 11,500 tickets on sale next Tuesday for each game in the two series, with all attendees required to wear masks and practice social distancing. The stadium will be the first-ever neutral site for a World Series, and no seats will be available within 20 feet (6 m) of where players are located at any time during the games.
An MLB spokesman said on Wednesday that there were no plans to permit fans at the American League Championship Series in San Diego.
