JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Following the restrictions implemented due to COVID-19, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp held their first full-capacity home game Tuesday night at 121 Financial Ballpark.

Face coverings, although still encouraged, are not required at the stadium for anyone who is fully vaccinated. On Tuesday night, the Shrimp took on the Norfolk Tides.

Before the change, the Jumbo Shrimp were only filling the stadium to 45% capacity. About 3,000 people attended Tuesday night’s game, which is about the average Tuesday night game from before the pandemic.

This week’s series expects to see some bigger crowds for “Thirsty Thursday.”

Tickets for the rest of the season are available at jaxshrimp.com.
