HOUSTON — When the Houston Astros take the field at Minute Maid Park this season, they’ll do it in front of their fans for the first time since the World Series in 2019.

A spokesperson for the organization said capacity will be limited to about 25 percent for the 2021 games.

The Astros have advertised ticket plans on their website. Single-game tickets have not gone on sale yet.

Even before the start of the season on April 1, the Astros will welcome fans to their Spring Training games in the Grapefruit League starting Feb. 27 at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in Florida. Tickets are set to go on sale before the end of this month.

Meanwhile, The Cactus League and Arizona community leaders asked the MLB this week to delay the start of spring training due to COVID-19 concerns, according to the Associated Press. The MLB said it “continue(s) to consult with public health authorities, medical experts, and the players' association whether any schedule modifications to the announced start of spring training and the championship season should be made in light of the current COVID-19 environment to ensure the safety of the players, coaches, umpires, MLB employees and other game day personnel in a sport that plays every day.
