If you happen to be in Green Bay near the end of May and into June, you will have the opportunity to watch the Packers in shirts and shorts during their organized team activities. That’s because the Packers have announced that their OTA sessions will be open to the public and completed on Clark Hinkle Field on three separate Tuesdays – May 21, May 28, and June 11. All of the sessions begin at 11:30 a.m.
Of course, all sessions will be available weather permitting. Should the showers or thunderstorms arise, the Packers will move their OTAs inside, where they would be completed in private.
The Packers will be utilizing Clark Hinkle Field because preparations to the Ray Nitschke Field are ongoing to get that facility ready for the start of Training Camp, which will begin in earnest July 26. Players will report for training camp Thursday, July 25.
In addition there will be two mandatory minicamps held June 4 and 5. However, the times for those two sessions have yet to be announced. Standing room only along the Oneida Street side of Hinkle Field will be available for fans.
Oh, one other thing – if you had planned to attend the rookie orientation camp that’s scheduled for May 10-12 to catch a glimpse of Datone Jones, Eddie Lacy, and Johnathan Franklin, among others – change your plans. Those sessions will not be available to the public.
