St. College Spikes Ready for 2021

The Spikes haven’t played a home game since 2019. Now, not only will they be back on the field in may, but they’ll have fans in the stands as well.

The State College Spikes haven’t had baseball at Medlar Field for over a year on account of coronavirus restrictions.

With Governor Wolf announcing that outdoor venues can now fill up to twenty percent of their seats, the Spikes will officially have fans back in state college this season.

The Spikes director of communications Joe Putnam says its good to be back.

“It has been far too long for us and I’m sure many of our fans feel the same way and we are so much looking forward to having fans at the ballpark because to welcome fans back into the ballpark, its a privilege.”

The Spikes intend to prioritize fan safety despite the increased capacity, which for them means just over a thousand total fans, and are even preparing for potentially more changes before the season.

“You know, obviously first and foremost, the safety of our fans is the uppermost thing in our minds always. So, whatever we do will be with safety in mind. We want to provide not only the most fun experience possible for all of
our great fans but we want to provide the safest possible experience. And with that in mind, we’re developing plans for whatever scenarios present themselves on May twenty-fourth when we open up our season.”

Putnam added that those potential changes could include capacity being raised above twenty percent in the next three months.
