[Grant] Occupancy at stadium is 40,518. There will some social-distance sections for fans who want that, but not on opening day. Club officials stress over and over that voluntary compliance with mask requirement is essential to this plan working responsibly.

Voluntary compliance with masks? So no masks required.

What a hilarious tweet. “voluntary compliance with mask requirement is essential to this plan working responsibly”

Sounds like the definition of irresponsible

No social-distancing on opening day because they know that no one wants to watch the Rangers this year past Game 1.

Less facetiously, this just seems like a photo op for the state to use as a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

Based on how poorly they handled the last Opening Day I went to up at the old Ballpark In Arlington back in 2019, this whole situation has shitshow written allllllll over it.

By golly, I hope they have that roof wide open for the sake of everyone.

In other words, this plan won’t work responsibly. We’ve seen a lot of very bad ideas from baseball the last year and a half, like the extra inning runner on second, but a full crowd in a pandemic might be the worst idea this sport has ever seen

“Masks required” will be as enforced as the ‘I am 18’ button on porn sites.

I’m sure the will get 100 percent compliance too, this is going to suck for the people that work there.

I’m sure they offer great insurance for these seasonal employees and will ensure they are fully vaccinated. /s

Why can't they just ease into it? I get that they need to make up for lost revenue, but this ain't smart.

I’m sure this is gonna go as well for the Rangers as the time they left Nelson Cruz in right field during game 6

Look, we've had 527,000 covid deaths in the US so far. If we are going to get to 750,000 despite three vaccines in the supply chain, it's going to take some effort.

Jesus christ. Can we not be a just a little more patient and hold off on 100% capacity until we're in a better spot? Is it really that much of a detriment if your first 10 home games are only like 25% capacity? Is it really gonna be the death of the league's finances?

I can't even imagine feeling comfortable going to a capacity stadium that early in the season. What is so necessary about being there that you can't get on TV for the first couple months of the season?

17 : Anonymous2021/03/10 19:12 ID: gqhbyyb

Man vaccines should be available for everyone who wants one by June, I don't get why teams in states that are opening early aren't just doing a full capacity with proof of vaccination thing. You get your gate and concessions with out the potential of being named as the focal point of an outbreak that put hundreds of people in the hospital.

I am 100% not going until we have reached 75% of the general population having had their second dose. This flies in the face of the CDC recommendation of large gatherings.

I hate this. 50% might have been okay and 25% would have been prudent but low risk. 100% will probably lead to bad things.

Honestly I feel uncomfortable enough with the idea of 50% capacity at most stadiums, feel like this is a potential disaster waiting to happen

would it kill them to wait until a higher percentage of the population is vaccinated, like later this summer?

29 : Anonymous2021/03/10 19:07 ID: gqhbb5r

If dallas doesn't see a spike then any justification for social distancing measures is dead.

If dallas sees a spike, then there will be a lot of "told you so".

We will see...

I'm a full season ticket holder and I'm also vaccinated. I'm ready to show up mask and all but damn I really don't know how to feel about this
