HARRISBURG – Bipartisan legislation would modify social distancing requirements for Minor League ballparks in PA, allowing them to seat more fans in the stands and recoup financial losses suffered in 2020. The 2021 baseball season was delayed by several weeks, further compounding last year’s average losses suffered by Minor League baseball teams of $2 million to $5 million. Gov. Tom Wolf announced that, as of early April, capacity for outdoor events was to be 50%. House Bill 1141 would adapt the social distancing requirements in minor league stadiums to be 3 feet instead of 6 feet. Three feet is in line with recommendations from the World Health Organization. Minor League baseball is not only important to the local economies where teams play, but also to citizens looking for outdoor entertainment and socialization.
