PAPILLION, Neb (KMTV) — According to a news release on Thursday, Werner Park received updated Health and Safety Protocols from Major League Baseball.

As a result, and in line with current Nebraska and Sarpy County policies, face masks will no longer be a requirement inside Werner Park during games and events at the facility, effective Friday, May 14. This includes the NSAA Class B State Baseball games to be played at Werner Park beginning on May 15, as well as Omaha Storm Chasers and Union Omaha home games and any special events held at Werner Park.

Fans will still be required to wear a mask while entering the ballpark and while inside any fully enclosed space inside Werner Park.

The stadium will continue to have seating options available for fans to achieve social distancing. To discuss these options, please call the Werner Park Ticket Office at 402-738-5100.
