Pit Spitters Discuss New Health and Safety Guidelines for On-Field Activities
Turtle Creek Stadium has already set health and safety guidelines for fans planning to attend Traverse City Pit Spitters games this summer, and the same is true for the players themselves.
Several guidelines are in place for all on-field activities.
“Keeping the loitering down at the ballpark. Obviously trying to be as far away as we can, which in baseball, it’s a lot easier than in other sports,” Pit Spitters manager Josh Rebandt said. “It’s not a contact sport, so for us, it’s actually probably the best sport to restart out of golf or tennis. In the dugout, we’ve just got to make sure that we’re staying our distance away as best as we can. Guys bring their own water bottles this year. We have a water cooler, but they have to bring their own water bottle.”
Single game tickets went on sale Thursday morning, with 500 fans allowed entry per game.
The Pit Spitters open their season by hosting the Great Lakes Resorters next Wednesday.
First pitch from Turtle Creek Stadium is 7:05 p.m.
