Springfield Cardinals baseball is coming back!
The Cardinals released their 2021 schedule Thursday, which includes a 120 game regular season from May 4th-September 19th.
60 home games are scheduled for Hammons Field, and for the first time since 2016, the Cardinals will open at home.
They’ll take on the Wichita Wind Surge, the new Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, May 4th. That kicks off a six game Opening Homestand that lasts until May 9th.
Here’s what the Cardinals say in a news release about fan attendance at Hammons Field in 2021:
The Cardinals are excited to welcome fans back to the ballpark, though we do expect it to be different as we follow and enforce all City, County, State, National, NCAA and/or Major League Baseball ordinances throughout the year. As regulations loosen, we will quickly adapt and do the same to make the experience as enjoyable as possible while keeping players, fans and staff safe. Please note that with so many entities sharing Hammons Field, that even if one regulation is lifted, others may still be in effect (example: If MLB lifts an ordinance but the county does not, we will still follow the county).
Future ticket announcements will be forthcoming. Communication with RED Access Members about the 2021 season will continue next week.
