Washington, D.C–

Today the big decision came out of the Mayors office that the proposals from both the D.C United and the Washington Nationals had been sent in for consideration of 2000 and 5000 fans respectively to open stadiums for their Opening Days in April. Will you go to games? Will you be able to purchase tickets for a reasonable cost with these numbers? Only time will tell.

Per Mayor Bowser, addition considerations could be made by March 22, but she expects those numbers to be approved today. So who the low numbers for D.C when other stadiums such as the Orioles are able to host as many as 11,000 fans for Opening Day? No real comments on the decision, other than that’s what both teams had submitted in their requests to have fans in the stadium for both of their Opening Days respectively.

Expect the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals to submit their requests by the end of business tomorrow and pending review and metrics for indoor events in D.C, they too could also have up to 2000 fans per game of they were to stay in that 10 to 11 percent range.

With all of this being said, what number is a right number for outdoor sports. Shouldn’t they be pushing for some different concrete plans for April, May…?? Perhaps have a method in place where those with the vaccine and proof would allow for greater numbers at the various venues? Texas and the Rangers are going full capacity on Opening Day because the State of Texas said to fully reopen all of its doors. They could have capped their games, but they opted not to and it will be interesting to see what final results… numbers of cases comes from those games, if any? Who is reporting them? Do they have to tell their testing center if they feel symptoms later they attended a baseball game? Lots of questions remain.

We all want to be back in the ballparks and venues, including all of us here at Pointed Magazine, but we want to be safe and insure that well more than 10 to 11 percent is able to come back around all of the leagues. As fans enter these games, be diligent, obey the rules inside the games and we all be back together cheering on these teams at full capacity in the near future across all states.
