Long Island Ducks to return to play this month; negative COVID-19 test won't be required
A long time without Long Island Ducks baseball is set to come to an end later this month.
The Ducks will return to Fairfield Properties Ballpark to open their season against the Lexington Legends May 28 at 6:35 p.m. It'll be the team's first game since they clinched the Atlantic League title back in 2019.
Ducks general manager Michael Pfaff says a negative COVID-19 test will not be needed to get into a game, in line with Gov. Andrew Cuomo's announcement with the Yankees and Mets on Wednesday.
Pfaff says vaccinated fans can sit next to each other with masks at baseball games, including any children under 16. Unvaccinated fans will require 6-foot distancing with 33% capacity in "unvaccinated sections."
Suffolk Executive Steve Bellone says the county's police department will be on site on opening day providing vaccinations to anyone who wants one. He says the first 250 fans to get vaccinated at the ballpark will get a voucher for a free ticket to a game.
Pfaff says the Central Islip ballpark has improvements to safety railings, netting, landscaping outside the park and new signage.
Tickets are available on the Long Island Ducks website or by calling 631-940-TIXX.
