Q: Can I bring my own food or drink?
A: Ballpark rules prohibit outside food or beverages to be brought into the park. The concession stands sell a wide variety of food and beverages to satisfy most tastes. Also, water fountains are conveniently located on both sides of the main concourse.
Q: What is the policy when weather shortens or cancels the game?
A: If for any reason (rain, fog, etc.) less than 4 1/2 innings of a game are played (five full innings if the home team is trailing in the game), one of two scenarios will occur.
Scenario 1: The game is rescheduled to be played on an open date on the Ducks schedule. If this occurs, tickets do not need to be exchanged and are good for the newly scheduled game only.
Scenario 2: The game is rescheduled to be played as part of a doubleheader. When this happens, tickets for the cancelled game must be exchanged at the ballpark box office as soon as possible for a future 2013 Ducks regular season home game for a ticket of equal or lesser value. All games are subject to availability.
