WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif — With California’s plans to return businesses to normal operations next month, the Sacramento River Cats have announced that Sutter Health Park will return to full capacity, as well as remove social distancing restrictions, beginning June 17.

The organization’s decision to return the stadium to full capacity follows new guidelines from the California Department of Public Health. Fully vaccinated attendees will no longer be required to wear masks at the ballpark.

California will be removing nearly all restrictions, including socially distancing and allowing for full capacity, starting June 15.

Tickets for all remaining games at Sutter Health Park will go on sale on June 4.
