OSU fans in the stands watch during Friday's game of the Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State softball series on April 2, 2021 at Cowgirl Stadium in Stillwater.

When pitcher Carrie Eberle delivered the first pitch in Cowgirl Stadium in Sunday’s series finale against Oklahoma, it was the first OSU sporting event that had no capacity restriction since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020.

The announcement came a little late for an 11 a.m. first pitch at Cowgirl Stadium, but coach Kenny Gajewski was still pleased to see more OSU faithful at the game.

“It was awesome. It was great to see that. (I'm) disappointed we didn’t get that (news) out faster,” Gajewski said.

The announcement also means the final six home baseball games in O’Brate Stadium will have no restrictions. Coach Josh Holliday said he is excited for the season ticket holders who have not been able to come to the stadium, but can now get to take in the Cowboys new home.

The attendance has been good for O’Brate considering the 25% limitations, but now the Cowboys can get the full effect of their new stadium.

“I’m excited for all of those people to hopefully be a part of that group who gets to enter. We’ll for sure enjoy being at home in front of all of our fans. We’re excited that the school is making that decision,” Holliday said.
