Major League Baseball fans will be able to attend a game for the first time this season.

Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, will open its gates for a limited number of attendees at the National League Championship Series (NLCS) and World Series.

About 11,500 tickets will be available for each game.

The league has not allowed fans throughout the 2020 season because of the global pandemic.

Game 1 of the NLCS is set for October 12, as MLB looks to close the book on a chaotic and delay-filled season in which numerous players and personnel tested positive for COVID-19, after the viral pandemic forced a months-long delay of Opening Day.

No seats will be sold within 20 feet of where a player can be located on the field, in the dugouts or in the bullpen, part of safety restrictions that will be in place, that includes masks which will have to be worn by all fans attending.
