(lookouts.com) CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – AT&T Field is joining a growing number of ballparks that are going entirely cashless when the Minor League Baseball season opens on May 4th, the Chattanooga Lookouts announced today.

“Going cashless is going to make for faster, safer and more secure transactions. This is about looking after both our fans and our employees,” said Lookouts President Rich Mozingo. “We’re going to see quicker lines without the health risks of exchanging cash from hand-to-hand.”

Credit and debit cards will be accepted at all concession stands and the Lookouts Team Store. Fans who do not have credit or debit cards will be able to use cash to purchase Lookouts gift cards that will be able to be used in the team store, at every concession stand and our ticket windows.

Cashless transactions have been shown to reduce time fans spend in line and transactions at the register, thus improving the overall fan experience, shortening lines, and limiting the fan’s potential health exposure to others.

At the Major League level, the Tampa Bay Rays’ Tropicana Field was the first ballpark to become cashless in 2019, with the NBA’s Utah Jazz and NFL’s Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons following suit shortly thereafter. The fully cashless stadium experience arrived on football’s biggest stage with Super Bowl LV this past February in Tampa.

The Lookouts are also rolling out a brand-new digital ticket initiative. Beginning this season, all tickets are digital and able to be scanned on a phone or printed out at home. Once tickets are purchased, fans will receive their tickets by email. Tickets for the upcoming season begin at $8. Discounted general admission tickets for children (ages 3-12), seniors and military begin at $6.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
