HILLSBORO, Ore. — The Hillsboro Hops have increased capacity to 50% at Ron Tonkin Field starting with the team’s Tuesday home game against Tri-City, the organization announced. Up to 2,250 fans will be able to attend home games.

Fans who are vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to sit together in designated vaccinated sections and fans who are not vaccinated will be required to sit in pod seating in other areas of the ballpark.

Masks are no longer required, the team said, citing Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidance for venues that are outdoors.

“We look forward to welcoming more fans back to Ron Tonkin Field and allowing for some return to normalcy, while continuing to be safe,” said Hops President KL Wombacher. “We are hopeful that once the state meets the 70% vaccinated benchmark before June 19 as expected, that we are allowed to return to full capacity without restrictions. We will continue to follow CDC guidance in the meantime.”
