GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Indians made more tickets available for Opening Day this year and fans responded with another swift sellout of the team's season opener.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Indians made more tickets available for Opening Day this year and fans responded with another swift sellout of the team's season opener.

Indians single-game tickets went on sale Monday and the team's Opening Day game against the Red Sox on April 4 sold out in 40 minutes. It marked the 24th consecutive sellout of Cleveland's home opener, including the past 23 years at Progressive Field.

In response to many fans' feedback to last year's process, the Indians made roughly 10,000 more tickets available for Opening Day this season. The tickets still went fast.

"We always want to provide the best experience possible for our fans, and last year's public ticket on-sale fell short of that goal," Bob DiBiasio, the Indians' senior vice president of public affairs, said in a release. "After listening to fans' feedback, we enacted a new approach to ensure more tickets are available for the general public on-sale."

A select number of Opening Day tickets are still available for fans interested in purchasing full season-ticket packages. Season-ticket holders can save up to 50 percent on average over prices for single-game tickets, which are available for the remainder of the team's 81-game home schedule.
