A Great Ballpark!

Progressive Field is a great place to see a ballgame, just ask Indians' fans!

Below is a link to a survey asking fans in each major league city to rate their ballpark.

Everyone knows of the ambiance that was Jacobs Field, now Progressive Field. It is a beautiful place to take in a ballgame. The constant distractions that are thrust upon the fans of pro football and basketball have not infiltrated and affected the timeless moment that is a game of baseball in Cleveland. Even the concessionaires are respectful of the grand old game and are careful not to block a view or disrupt a play while peddling their wares. Additionally, we have true entertainment value in the way our fans come to the park and represent themselves at the game. Our bleacher drummer John Adams is nationally known. We have the American Indians that frequently protest our beloved logo Chief Wahoo at the gates of the park. For the most part, they are polite but firm in their beliefs, bringing forth a true moral question of the use of the caricature. There are the very colorful concessionaires (as mentioned above) who are so creative and entertaining as they provide food, drink, and fun.

There is a great Customer Care department that truly goes out of their way to ensure a very pleasant and memorable experience.

All that said, there are some things to avoid.

Do not park on East 14th Street in the daylight and think you will be able to cut back through the Erie Street Cemetery in total will scare the crap out of you and it is not safe!

Do not buy bleacher tickets for Friday nights. At the top of the 8th inning, all of the seating attendants and security people disappear to help out with preparation for the fireworks show. The bleachers become sheer bedlam!

Do not wear cheap cologne to the park (especially if you are a player) in late September and early October...the Midges will get ya!
See ya at the "Pro!"
