NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo shared big news for baseball fans Wednesday.

He announced that starting this month, vaccinated spectators can attend Yankees and Mets games in sections designated for 100% capacity.

Separate sections for unvaccinated guests will still enforce six feet of social distancing between parties, at 33% of total capacity. Masks will also remain mandatory in the unvaccinated sections.

Both baseball teams will also be offering free tickets in exchange for fans receiving a vaccine at a game.

The changes will go into effect on May 19.

The governor was joined Wednesday by Mets president Sandy Alderson and Yankees president Randy Levine.
