As the season ended unexpectedly, those who purchased single-game tickets to a scheduled baseball or softball games will be refunded. As for season ticket holders and annual seat contributions, a pro-rated refund will be issued.

For those who purchased season tickets for Tech baseball, Senior Associate Athletics Director Robert Giovannetti said Tech Athletics is determining the pro-rated number will be determined next week.

“We’re disappointed for our student-athletes, coaches and fans, but we understand the magnitude of this outbreak and its impact on society as a whole,” Hocutt said, according to the release.
