Baseball season parking passes ARE valid for postseason play and will allow you entry to your normal parking lot this weekend.

The shuttle service from the Colonial Life Arena lots will also still be in use for the Regional. Parking is free at the arena and the shuttle costs just $2 per person round trip. Shuttles will begin running from Colonial Life Arena two hours before each game time, so at 11:00 a.m. for the 1:00 p.m. games and at 5:00 p.m. for the 7:00 p.m. games.
ENTERING AND EXITING THE STADIUM/ GETTING READY FOR THE NEXT GAME
The box office and stadium gates will open 1.5 hours prior to the start of the game
Box Office/Gates Open:
11:30 a.m. for 1:00 p.m. games

Carolina Stadium will be cleared of fans at the end of each game. Fans with tickets for the second game of the day will need to exit the stadium after the first game and re-enter later with the appropriate ticket for the second game.
The ticket box office at Carolina Stadium will be open after all games to sell tickets for the next games. For example, after Carolina's game is over Friday night, fans will be able to go to the box office then to buy single game tickets for the appropriate game on Saturday (hopefully the Winner's game at 7:00!!)

If you purchased a season parking pass you will be parking in the parking lot that corresponds to the parking lot number and address with which it is associated (Note: while there are reserved parking lots, there are NOT reserved numbered parking spaces in them). If you do not have a parking pass you should consider taking the baseball shuttle that picks up at the Carolina Life Area parking lot B that is located at Blossom, Lincoln, Devine and Gadsden streets. The shuttle will run continuously before, during and after the baseball game for one hour. The cost to use the shuttle is $2.00 per person round trip and there is no cost for parking. Please see the game information chart for the hours of operation. The trip takes less than 8 minutes and the wait time according to most fans is minimal.
