What about tickets?
Tickets for the Round Round Express 2021 season will be available to the public but due to safety concerns from the city and MLB, they will be at a reduced capacity.
There will be pods with a certain number of seats available and will be spread 6 feet apart. Just about every team will have a set up similar to this for safety measures. As the season progresses, if safety guidelines are relaxed, more seating should become available.
The first few front rows may not be available to create a buffer zone to protect players.
Express season ticket holders will get first priority for tickets.
Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and any season ticket holders are encouraged to opt into any games they plan on attending when the windows open.
After a quick window for season ticket holders/members select their games, the remaining tickets will then be sold to the general public.
The Round Rock Express have confirmed that any unused credits for season ticket holders will roll over to 2022.
Will i have to wear a mask?
Yes, if you are older than two, a mask will be required. It is required at all times unless you are eating or drinking. So between bites or drinks, that mask has to be on.
This is sure to be an exciting season for Round Rock and we’ll see some exciting prospects come through the Dell Diamond this year. There are rumors that Josh Jung may start the season in Triple-A.
