Ongoing construction at Ranger Field will affect fans attending the season opening game on Saturday at Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
The Rangers will play host to Colorado State University-Pueblo at 7 p.m.
Fans are reminded that the new locker room complex will be closed to the public as construction continues on the building.
“We know that many fans will want to view the progress that has been made on the complex, but the area remains a construction site and for safety reasons no one will be allowed in the building,” said David Pecha, vice president for administration.
Campus police will be present at the stadium to assist fans.
Fans are reminded that children at the game should be supervised and not allowed near the construction site and the south bowl.
New public rest rooms in the complex also will be closed. Northwestern has ordered additional portable toilets to accommodate the crowd.
Members of the Northwestern baseball team will direct parking at the game. Some parking areas, especially on the east side of the stadium, have been damaged by construction and fans are asked to use caution when parking. Parking on the first and second tiers of the south bowl is reserved for those fans who purchased parking rights and who present a valid reserved parking pass.
Fans attending the game will have the chance to view the new scoreboard and message center. The message center will feature player photos and other images.
