PROGRESSIVE FIELD

CLEVELAND, OH

Can you guess the team that has retired a number that is associated with their stadium? If you guessed the Cleveland Indians and the number 455, you are correct! Coupled with a successful team and one of the newest ballparks in baseball, for 455 straight games between 1995 and 2001 the Indians sold out every game at what was then known at Jacobs Field. Before the 1994 season a sellout was rare as the Indians played at the cavernous Cleveland Municipal Stadium along Lake Erie. For over six decades the Indians played here, usually in front of a sparse crowds. In 1985 David and Richard Jacobs purchased the Indians hoping to have a new ballpark built and to improve the team as both the team and stadium were known as being one of the worst in baseball. The Gateway Economic and Development Committee was established to build a new sports complex for the Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA). In May 1990 voters approved a bond for construction of a new ballpark and arena. Located in downtown Cleveland, construction began in 1992. The stadium was built as part of a an urban renewal project that also includes Quicken Loans Arena (NBA), parking garages and landscaped plazas. View from centerfield at Progressive FieldArchitecturally the ballpark blends in with downtown Cleveland; from its exposed steel design, that matches many bridges on the North coast and the vertical light towers, that match the smoke stacks of Cleveland's industrial zone and the high-rise office buildings in downtown Cleveland.

Originally known as Jacobs Field, the Cleveland Indians played their first game here on April 4, 1994 against the Seattle Mariners. The ballpark once held over 43,000 fans, today has a capacity of over 37,000 and is named Progressive Field. Fans can enter the ballpark from one of many entry gates, but many enter through the Gate C entrance in centerfield. Revamped after the 2014 season, this area connects the ballpark with downtown Cleveland. It contains Heritage Park which is the Indians Hall of Fame and statues of Cleveland greats, Bob Feller and Jim Thome. From centerfield or anywhere in the ballpark, fans see a stadium much different from Cleveland Municipal Stadium. In left field is the 19 foot high outfield wall, nicknamed the mini Green Monster, with the 120 foot by 200 foot HD video/scoreboard above. Three tiers of stands extend from the left field foul pole to homeplate and around into right/center field. Prior to the start of the 2015 season the upper deck seating in right-center field was removed and replaced with terrace areas for group seating. This decreased the seating capacity from 43,405 to 37,630. Below the upper deck, a two story corner bar, features 40 tap beers providing fans with a bar with a view. The Market Pavilion, featuring neighborhood themed establishments including Dynomite Burgers, Great Lakes Brewing Company and Sweet Moses is also here. Tiered bullpens are in right-center field

For 13 seasons the ballpark was named Jacobs Field, often referred as "The Jake". In 2008, the naming rights were sold to Progressive Insurance for $3.6 million/year for 16 years, thus receiving its current name, Progressive Field. Progressive Field has provided the city with many great memories including hosting the 1997 All-Star Game and games of the 1995 and 1997 World Series. The Indians success during this time led to 455 consecutive sellouts at the ballpark from June 12, 1995 to April 4, 2001.
