The Mets and Yankees are allowed 20% Seating Capacity for Early Season Games

 It was announced yesterday that Citi Field and Yankee Stadium can admit 20% of their seating capacity in early season games.  Fans must show proof that they were vaccinated or show a recent negative COVID test.  Thus, approximately 8300 fans will be allowed in Cit Field while 10,000 will be at Yankee Stadium.  I assume that as more people are vaccinated and the infection rate goes down more fans will be allowed.

This is a step in the right direction, but there will be problems.  I assume that opening day will be sold out, but 80% of the ticket buyers will be shut out.  Which season ticket holders will be allowed in?

In any event, let's hope for a 162 game season with no interruptions.
