For the first time since Major League Baseball halted training camps in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, spectators will be taken aback.
They will be able to pass through turnstiles at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Atlanta Braves for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Monday night.
Around 11,500 tickets were available, sold in groups of four, each separated by at least six feet. That’s about 28% of the total $ 1.2 billion capacity of the new Texas Rangers Stadium, which seats 40,518 people.
Spectators are not allowed in the American Championship Series, which takes place at Petco Park in San Diego.
“I think it’s a step towards getting back to normal when people were free to choose to go out and do what they wanted,” said Dodgers reliever Blake Treinen. It’s not fun to play baseball without the fans. “
Buehler … in how many rounds?
Walker Buehler has to start the game for the Dodgers. The question is: for how many rounds?
The right hand has had problems with blisters for some time. He was also limited to eight rounds in two series starts. He does not have a decision yet, and has a 3.38 earned running average, striking out 16 strokes.
Southpaw Max Fried (0-0, 3.27) will be on the mound for the Braves. The 26-year-old pitcher ended the season with a 7-0 record and a 2.25 ERA.
