In light of ballparks across the country going dark during the lockdown, teams continue to find ways to utilize all their assets to create memorable experiences for fans. Teams are making memories and some are making a little revenue while they are at it.
Many teams are building out Father’s Day gift packs, batting cage swings, video board notes and even play-by-play for their kids. Here the YardGoats are renting out the outfield for hour segments for Dad’s to have their moment in the sun.
