“Home of the Cleveland Indians”
This world-class facility was created expressly for baseball, specifically for Cleveland. This urban ballpark and Cleveland landmark offers a fan-friendly facility within an intimate environment. It was ranked as Major League Baseball's best ballpark in a 2008 Sports Illustrated fan opinion poll.The ballpark was named Jacobs Field after team owners Richard and David Jacobs, from its inaugural season in 1994 until 2008, when its name was changed to Progressive Field after its naming rights were purchased by the Progressive Insurance Company. Fans refer to the ballpark as The Jake, based on the park's original name, and since the renaming, people have infrequently called it "The Pro" or "The Prog"
Intimate is the best word for this place. You really get up close and personal with the team. People are usually nice, and the staff has always treated us well.
It feels much smaller than GABP (as a Cincinnatian, this is my default) but if you go to the lower deck outfield area, you can find some good food options, Melt and those burgers and tacos and stuff. Also, I was really surprised to see that they had lots of craft beer from... Cincinnati! Gimme dat Mt. Carmel.
Oh, and I have to say, Indians fans are really chill, fun people... even if you happen to be there rooting for the other team :)
Although I may be biased as a native Clevelander and Cleveland Indians fan, you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful ballpark to experience a game at. There is no bad seat in the house. Progressive Field is the perfect place to spend a summer evening. Check out the team schedule for promotional giveaways and discounts.
