Attend More Games

The first time I saw Progressive Field with the words “World Series” painted in foul territory, I did not want to leave. I think many fans felt the same way.

Seeing the tens-of-thousands of fans packed into Progressive Field – even though some were Cubs fans – was awe-inspiring. The atmosphere was electric.

Many players have gone on record via interviews and social media thanking the fans for showing up to support them. I think we owe it to them to show them that same support that we did in October all year.

As already said, season-ticket sales are through the roof. Single-game ticket sales are expected to be similar.

The Indians ranked 28th in baseball in 2016 in average attendance with 19,650 people per game. This is, however, up nearly 2,000 for 2015. A significant jump should happen in 2017.

Between the winning team and the amazing ballpark upgrades that have been installed over the past few years, Progressive Field has become an epicenter of entertainment and memories in downtown Cleveland.

The Indians have put a team on the field that is worth paying to see. It is worth investing time and money in this team. We as fans need to do that more often, and 2017 is a great time to start.
