Enthusiasm is never in short supply at Progressive Field.
Located downtown, steps away from the home of the Cavaliers, the Indians' home park provides a retro-modern setting with glorious views of the Cleveland skyline. Progressive Field -- which has hosted the All-Star Game and more than a few memorable postseason moments -- features a tall left-field wall inspired by Boston's Green Monster and distinct light towers that resemble toothbrushes.
With super-fan John Adams banging the drum out in the bleachers, the park sold out a then-record 455 straight games from 1995 to 2001, in the midst of a particularly exciting time in franchise history.
-Heritage Park: Out in center field, Indians icons are honored with plaques in Heritage Park. The park also recalls the history of the franchise, offering visitors exhibits that relive the team's long history in Cleveland.
-The Corner: Behind floor-to-ceiling windows in right field, fans looking for some craft brews with their baseball will find it at The Corner. The bar is distinctly of Cleveland, with designs and materials derived from an old foundry. The name evokes Tom Hamilton's daily introduction: "We're underway from the corner of Carnegie and Ontario."
