WAYNE – As the first home spring event approaches on the Wayne State campus in nearly two years, fan and attendance policies were updated.
According to a release from the Wayne State Athletics office, the Wayne State College baseball team will be hosting Northern State University on Saturday and Sunday, March 20 – 21.
Fans will be required to wear a mask at all times when attending a game at the Pete Chapman Baseball Complex.
Fans will also be asked to sit in family groups and social distance from other groups of people.
Hand sanitizing stations will be available for spectator use. Water fountains have been capped and fans will not be allowed on the competition fields before, during or after games.
No concessions will be available at the Pete Chapman Baseball Complex. Restrooms will be cleaned before and after the event with Triforce. Signage is posted on the doors of all restrooms that encourage social distancing and markings of six feet apart for spacing on the floors.
Extra portable restrooms are available for the visiting team near dugout. Signs will be posted to encourage hand washing and proper hygiene.
Teams will stay in their dugout areas between games to avoid mixing with spectators and the home team.
