After having their 2020 season cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and having their opening day game postponed due to weather the previous day, the Chattanooga Lookouts hosted the River City Trash Pandas for their first home game in over 600 days.

The Chattanooga Lookouts no longer have capacity restrictions at AT&T Field.

Beginning with Tuesday night's game against the visiting Rocket City Trash Pandas, the Lookouts will make all 6,340 seats available at the facility that opened before the 2000 season. Chattanooga's Class AA franchise had a 40% capacity for the first three homestands of this season due to the coronavirus pandemic and played the past three homestands with a 70% limit.

The Lookouts have four six-game homestands remaining in their 120-game schedule.

"As much as we would love to think that we're going to do way bigger numbers, historically, as school gets geared up, we tend to slow down a little bit," Lookouts president Rich Mozingo said. "To get to 6,300 right now may be a stretch, but we've done it in the past.
