Cutters Implementing New Clear Bag Policy
To provide a safer environment for fans, expedite fan entry and to better adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, the Williamsport Crosscutters are implementing a new CLEAR BAG POLICY that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into Historic Bowman Field for Cutters games beginning with the 2021 season. The Williamsport Crosscutters encourage fans to not bring any type of bags when attending games, but will permit fans to carry the following style and size bag into the stadium (subject to visual or, if deemed necessary, physical inspection):
– Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″
– One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziplock bag or similar)
– In addition to one clear bag per person, fans are also permitted to carry a small clutch bag no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” with or without a handle or strap. More information on the new Clear Bag Policy is available by visiting crosscutters.com
