Columbia baseball fans can now dine in the reliever boxes along the third baseline at Segra Park, home of the Columbia Fireflies.
The new restaurant has a full-time chef, an outdoor bar and screenings of old Fireflies games on the jumbotron on Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 9pm.
According to the company’s website, dinner options include “traditional baseball fare, as well as wraps, salads and great appetizers.” The restaurant also has drink offerings similar to those of the regular baseball season.
Segra Park closed to the public on March 18 following the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. After looking for safe ways to get fans back to the park, stadium management decided to open the full-service restaurant in the outdoor enclosures. The area is kept below full capacity, with just 21 tables spaced approximately ten feet apart.
Adding another level of security, the restaurant requires customers to make a table reservation request online. Management informs customers after evaluating availability if their reservation has been accepted. A waiter at the restaurant explained that as tables are limited, reservations make it possible to control the number of customers dining at the same time.
Guests are also required to sign a COVID-19 waiver prior to arrival, wear a mask until they are seated at their table, and pay by credit or debit instead of cash.
While the minor league baseball season has not been canceled, the Fireflies have yet to play. South Carolina American League Baseball officials said on Friday they will host Segra Series games this summer, as various teams from the state will come to Segra Park to play throughout the season.
