HOUSTON, Texas — The Houston Astros will permit 100% attendance for games at Minute Maid Park starting May 25.
The capacity will remain at full capacity for the rest of the season, the team said Monday.
The Astros will not require masks for fans who are fully vaccinated. The team said fans who aren’t fully vaccinated are encouraged to wear them, and the club will make them available to fans as they enter the stadium.
They are among a growing number of teams in major league baseball planning to play to a full house.
The Boston Red Sox will be allowed to fill Fenway Park to capacity as of Memorial Day weekend.
The Texas Rangers played to 100% capacity for opening day, and the Atlanta Braves on May 7 were the first baseball team to go to full capacity full-time. The Diamondbacks, Nationals, Twins, Phillies and Brewers have also announced plans to go to full capacity.
