Ivey’s amended order means Toyota Field will soon host events

MADISON – With Governor Kay Ivey’s announcement earlier today regarding the amended Safer at Home Order for Alabama beginning tomorrow, the Rocket City Trash Pandas say they are excited to start rolling out some non-baseball events to introduce the North Alabama community to Toyota Field.

While the organization still awaits word on the start of the Minor League Baseball season, the Trash Pandas will take the opportunity to host various events at Toyota Field.

The Trash Pandas staff will be adhering to all CDC guidelines to ensure that everyone feels safe as they enter the gates for any event. With the ability to operate at 50 percent capacity, events could hold up to 3,750 people.
Such events being considered include:

Week-long kids’ camps for ages 5-12, which will include hitting in the batting cage, kickball on the field, and arts and crafts. These camps are scheduled to begin on June 1st. Registrations will begin on Tuesday, May 26th.

  • Concerts, happy hours and fireworks shows.
  • Instructional Baseball camps.
  • Movie nights.
  • Small festivals and more.

“We are certainly disappointed to not be playing baseball right now, as is the rest of Minor League Baseball,” says team CEO Ralph Nelson. “But while we wait to hear about our season, why not make the best of this situation and try to give the people of North Alabama what they want? Let’s open the gates.”

While a baseball stadium first, Toyota Field is a multi-purpose facility designed to take on events outside of baseball. In addition to America’s pastime, the stadium was built to host concerts, festivals, corporate meetings, parties, 5K/10K runs and other events year-round.
