The Humboldt Crabs have announced their return to the field June 4, with three local players on the roster.

Willamette University infielder Ethan Fischel, Bethel University utility man Aidan Morris and Umpqua Community College pitcher Caleb Ruiz, who all hail from Eureka, will among those taking to the field this summer.

As for how many spectators can take themselves out to the ballgame, there's no hard number yet. Crabs President David Sharp responded to an email from the Journal, saying  the stands will welcome "somewhere between 20-33 percent capacity, so somewhere in the range of 350-450 fans." For now, entry won't require proof of vaccination, though visitors will have to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Sharp says, "Seating will be arranged in 1-4 person pods, all socially distanced throughout the bleachers and outfield grass areas. Tickets must be purchased in advance through our website." Not ready to join the crowd? Don't sweat it. Sharp adds that the games will be live streamed so nobody misses a swing.
