Clinton Lumberkings Plan 1st Event of the Year…It’s Not Baseball
This time last year we would've been cheering during opening day with our peanuts & cracker jacks. But 2020 has thrown us a curve ball...that went into the stands and knocked out our front teeth.
Now the first event at NelsonCorp Field in Clinton is not a Lumberkings game. They're bringing in a ringer hitting dingers. The very first event of the season will be this Saturday, May 30th, featuring the Unidynes.
The LumberKings will be following social distancing rules where each guest must have a mask to be worn at all times, with the exception of while eating or drinking. They'll have designated seating areas with 6 foot distance between guests. You won't be able gather in groups of more than 10 and of course they'll have plenty of sanitizing stations will be set up throughout the entire area.
Not exactly how I remember baseball games. We normally have 15-20 crowded around picnic tables...sharing "garbage pails" of fried food and high fives.
The entry gate located on 6th Avenue North closest to the Picnic Garden will be open at 4 pm with the Unidynes taking the stage at 5 pm.
The stage will be set-up on the playing surface in left field with available seating stretching from the Beer Garden windows all the way to the Picnic Pavilion atop the bermed area in left field. Picnic tables and bar stools with half-tables will be available for seating. Fans are also encouraged to bring along a lawn chair and/or blanket to use on the grassy-bermed area.
Admission is $5 for all ages. Food and drinks will be available for purchase and tobacco use of any kind is prohibited. Select souvenir merchandise will also be on sale that night near the entry gate.
