CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A summertime tradition is back, although this season there’s a twist to spending a night under the stars at the ballpark. Since the Charlotte Knights aren’t able to play ball because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re inviting fans to Truist Field, formerly named BB&T Ballpark, on select dates for a little outdoor entertainment.
On July 11, fans can enjoy ballpark favorites and brews with one of the best views of uptown along with music, trivia and cornhole. Dinner reservations are required and cost $10 per person. The cost will be used as food and drink credit to use while you’re there. Separate seating areas have been arranged to give each group space for social distancing.
Disc golfers can also hit the field for nine holes of disc golf. Reservations are required and cost $72 for a group of three or fewer. Dinner reservations are included and each player will receive a free Charlotte Knights disc.
Truist Field is also hosting the Piedmont Pride, from the Southern Collegiate Baseball League, for 18 baseball games this summer. No stadium seating will be used during the series but fans who want to watch the action can book one of the seven concourse restaurants at the field. Each space has a maximum capacity of 25.

Organizers ask that all guests practice social distancing during events. In addition, there will be sanitizing stations throughout the ballpark and all Knights staff members will wear proper face masks.
In addition, small groups can have batting practice sessions at the ballpark on select weekdays.
Keep an eye on the team’s website and social media pages for announcements on more upcoming events.
