Rain Out or Delay.
Games are NEVER canceled more than 2 hours before the game per league rules. On the day of the game, weather forecasts are continuously evaluated at the ballpark and all decisions are made as early as possible. The umpires have the final call on whether the game is canceled or not.
Fans are welcome to check the status of any game, but if you call more than 2 hours before game time you will receive “the game is still on until further notice”.
In the unfortunate event that a game is canceled/postponed, it is first posted on our website homepage and through our Facebook and Twitter pages. Area radio and television stations are next to be notified and many include updates in their news breaks.
If a game is canceled, your game ticket is good for the rescheduled game.
If it starts raining at the game, where do fans go?
To properly social distance, we advise all fans to stay in their seat if they are under an awning OR head to their vehicles. We will let you back in once the weather leaves the area – with a ticket or not. WE CAN NOT overcrowd awning areas and/or tents.
Employees will seek shelter on tents, merchandise stands, press box but only if they can social distance. If not, they must head to their cars.
What if a game starts and there is a rain delay?
If it begins raining during a game, there may be a rain delay. Typically the game will restart after the rain shower goes through and food/beverage will still be served during the delay.
If a game is rained out prior to the conclusion of the 5th inning or prior to the gates opening, all tickets will be good for the rescheduled game later that season.
If the rainout occurs 2 hours after the gates have opened but ends before the 5thinning, all Group Areas featuring all-inclusive food/beverage will be considered used in full and can only be redeemed for a bleacher ticket at the rescheduled game.
If the game is shortened due to rain but has been played beyond the required 5 innings to make it a complete game, all tickets will be considered used and will have no value at the ticket office. All promotions, dates, and times subject to change without notice.
How much is parking?
Parking is complimentary on game days. There is also Reserved Parking with a VIP Parking Pass or if you have an Accessible Parking sticker on the vehicle.
*Update* There has been a gravel parking lot added to the current lot in the Northwest Corner that is available for patrons to use.
What is the age minimum to purchase a ticket?
Children 3 and under receive FREE admission to the game but must sit on an adult’s lap for the duration of the game.
Do you accept Credit Cards at the Stadium?
We accept all major Credit Cards at all our Concession Stands, Ticket Offices, and Clark’s Closet. We do have an ATM at the ballpark in the merchandise tent.
Where is the shady side of the stadium?
Directly behind Home Plate is a covered awning that protects you from all aspects of the weather. The 3rd base side also receives shade for later games due to the sunset.
May fans keep baseballs that land in the seating areas?
YES, you may keep any baseball that is thrown or batted into the seating areas. Fans are encouraged to pay attention at all times to the playing field because baseballs can come your way at any point during or before the game. However, you can exchange that baseball for a $2 bill courtesy of BNC Bank at the box office.

If I am singing the national anthem or throwing out the first pitch, where do I go before the game?
