DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — A Volusia County baseball park will soon be welcoming fans but not to watch a game.
The Daytona Tortugas are hosting a movie night at Jackie Robinson Ball Park to give back to the community that has supported the team for more than a century.
“We have a fantastic community and they have supported us here for over 100 years, and it was our way to put together a community-based event,” said Jim Jaworski, the Tortugas general manager.
The Tortugas are selling tickets to watch the movie “42” at the ballpark.
Jaworksi said they sold 25% of the 219 family spaces before noon, and they are taking precautions to make sure everyone is safe.
Attendees will be able to take a blanket or chair and sit on the field itself with everyone in groups of four or fewer and each spread 6 feet apart.
Officials said they hope to do more similar events in the future.
