After delaying the 2020 MLB season, the COVID-19 pandemic will play a factor in the 2021 season as well. Mass gatherings, like baseball games, are still only able to happen with reduced capacity, but some teams will be able to host fans this year.
The Detroit Tigers have just announced their fan capacity for Opening Day at Comerica Park.
Detroit will allow 1,000 fans into the park on Opening Day. While it's less than 3% of the stadium's full capacity, it's still something for fans who want to be there in person.
The Tigers head into the 2021 MLB season with +10000 odds to win the World Series, per FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB futures. While that places them in the bottom 10, this season is expected to be unpredictable, and you can't truly count out any teams yet.
Detroit will open its season on April 1 against the Cleveland Indians, giving fans their first chance to see the team in person since 2019 after the Tigers played at Comerica Park without fan attendance in 2020.
