Heading to one of the St. Louis Cardinals’ minor league ballparks, but unsure of the current regulations? Teams have made changes to their face covering and capacity policies and we have the specifics for all four stadiums.

The Memphis Redbirds (Triple-A) changed their policies on May 18. In accordance with Shelby County Health Directive, The Redbirds and AutoZone Park are allowing full capacity. Fans in attendance are only required to wear face coverings indoors. Signage has been posted around the ballpark to inform fans of areas that face coverings are required.

The Springfield Cardinals (Double-A) also changed their policies on May 18 after the Springfield City Council unanimously approved the changes in their meeting on May 17. The Cardinals and Hammons Field are allowing full capacity starting June 1. As of May 28, face coverings will not be required at the ballpark, including indoors.

Fully vaccinated fans can attend games without face coverings. Fans not fully vaccinated are still required to wear face coverings in public areas. Fans who wish to remain socially distanced can sit in Section 103.

The Palm Beach Cardinals (Low-A) announced their policy change on May 27. Roger Dean Stadium will no longer require face coverings starting on May 28.
