MOREHEAD CITY, NC - The Morehead City Marlins - back-to-back champions of the Coastal Plain League - formally announce the 2021 schedule and ticket plans.
Marlins baseball will officially make its return to Big Rock Stadium after a one-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Marlins will play 50 games during the season, including 44 in the Coastal Plain League and six exhibition games against various opponents.
"After a long 2020, the Marlins are excited to get back on the field, and the season will be here before we know it," team owner Buddy Bengel said. "We are thrilled to welcome our great fans back to Big Rock Stadium for the upcoming season to celebrate our back-to-back championships and showcase all of the exciting new additions to our organization. The 2021 season is gearing up to be the best season in Marlins history."
This season, the Marlins are also rolling out new ticket plans including the "4 pack," which includes four all-you-can-eat tickets to four of the most popular games of the season, merchandise credits and Marlins hats.
