The team will welcome back fans on May 4 with limited capacity in the stadium.
“We’re always excited for opening day, but taking a year off was really an odd experience,” RiverDogs President Dave Echols said. “So the excitement and the hype from everyone in the front office is off the charts so we’re really excited about it. We can’t wait to open the gates.”
Tickets go on sale Thursday morning, and for the first time this year, all ticket sales will be completed online.
