The Indianapolis Indians have announced that Victory Field will operate at 50% capacity for its next two homestands beginning Tuesday, June 1, and continuing through Sunday, June 20. In total, 12 home contests will be played during that span with approximately 6,900 tickets available per game.
Regarding face coverings, both Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have deferred to state and local authorities on mask mandates.
Per the current Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) mandate by Director Dr. Virginia A. Caine, and backed by Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett, face coverings will be required for all fans over the age of 2 years old. Fans may only remove masks when actively eating or drinking in their ticketed seat location.

Frustration Mounts Towards Indy Mask Mandate
The MCPHD is supposed to release an update this week on mask mandates, while many across the state and the country have already dropped the mask mandate.
We would assume that the local mask mandate goes away this week, but as our Marion County and statewide approach to the pandemic has seemed highly political, and seemingly not very scientific nor focused on health, we'll just have to wait to see. Especially since dropping the mask mandate this week would have implications for the Indy 500. Plus the way we treated the Big Ten Championships and the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament seemed a little off. As if the timing of certain “relaxations” were based solely on events, not science.
This conversation on the MCPHD Twitter thread sums up the frustration pretty well.
Having been to Victory Field for the first homestand last week, we can assure you that everything is on the up-and-up at Victory Field and you should have no fears about attending a game in person, mask or not.
