Clear Bag Policy
The Daytona Tortugas have adopted a clear bag policy for all games and events held at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The clear bag policy was created and implemented to ensure the safety of the fans. Find out more information about our clear bag policy below.
Each ticketed fan is allowed to bring in one (1) clear bag no larger than 12” x 6” x 12” or a small purse/clutch no larger than 6.5” x 4.5” with or without a strap. All bags will be subject to a search. See graphic above for details.
_*Please note that all types of bags and clutch purses will be screened prior to entry into the stadium. Diaper bags are permitted in, regardless of size, but will be subject to screening as well. All bags and purses not meeting the requirements set forth by the clear bag policy will not be permitted to enter the ballpark this year. There is no storage area for any items at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. _
Fans carrying required medical supplies or devices into the stadium are not subject to the clear bag policy but will be required to go through the bag check lines setup.
The new policy allows for a safer environment, helps expedite the entry process into Jackie Robinson Ballpark, and enhances the game day experience. The clear bag rules fall in line with most entertainment venues around the country including Minor League Baseball ballparks.
