“We can’t wait to welcome baseball back to Dell Diamond for the Round Rock Classic,” Round Rock Express President Chris Almendarez said. “This year’s field is loaded with some of the best teams in the country and we are looking forward to hosting the tournament in a safe and responsible, socially distant manner.”
The Classic is set to host fans at a reduced capacity of approximately 3,500 attendees. Due to attendance restrictions and in order to uphold COVID-19 safety procedures and recommended guidelines, each game will be sold individually. The stadium will be cleared following the first game of each day. Fans will have the ability to enter the stadium one hour prior to the start of each game. Dell Diamond and the Round Rock Express have hosted numerous events throughout the last year, including a temporary expansion team in the Texas Collegiate League, and have set the example for how to operate events safely and efficiently in a COVID-19 world.
“We are excited about hosting the second annual Round Rock Classic,” President of Peak Events Ryan Holloway said. “In our mission of being the #BestOutsideOfOmaha, it is very important that we continue with hosting this first class, fan focused event. The partnership with the Round Rock Express will really shine this year as they have been the leader in stadium entertainment by putting on numerous events since the pandemic hit. We are excited to provide a heck of a lineup and will do so in a safe manner.”
