Utah Baseball Will Relocate Home Games to Ogden Beginning May 8
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah's baseball program will relocate nine home games of the 2021 season to Lindquist Field in Ogden, beginning with the May 8-10 series against Northern Colorado. After this weekend's home series against Arizona State, Friday-Sunday, the only Utah baseball game to be played at Smith's Ballpark will be the May 12 matchup with Utah Valley.
The move became necessary because of the primary tenancy of the Salt Lake Bees at Smith's Ballpark, and the difficulty in scheduling games at optimal times on the same day due to new COVID-19 protocols introduced for Minor League Baseball organizations. The customary turnaround time between a Utah baseball game and a Salt Lake Bees game has increased to allow for proper cleaning and sanitizing of facilities, making it more difficult to play two games in one day after the Bees begin their 2021 home season on May 6.
The Ogden Raptors, primary tenants of Lindquist Field, do not begin their home schedule until June.
The Utes' first game at Lindquist Field will be Saturday, May 8, against Northern Colorado. In addition to the Northern Colorado series, Utah will have two more series in Ogden against Oregon (May 14-16) and USC (May 27-29).
In staying consistent with the Pac-12, local and university guidelines, fans will be admitted in a limited quantity to Lindquist Field. Spectators will be required to wear a mask at all times while in attendance.
Season ticket holders will be contacted via email with more information in regards to their ticket options. For general admission, tickets will go on sale in the next week and be posted on the Utah baseball schedule page.
