Baseball in Cleveland is one of the city's oldest traditions, dating to 1869. After buying the Indians in 1986, owners Richard Jacobs and his late brother David committed to building a winning formula in Cleveland. This plan included creating a world-class, baseball-only ballpark. The owners' vision became a reality in 1994, when Progressive Field (formerly known as Jacobs Field) opened. This urban ballpark is located within the physical boundaries of three main streets in downtown Cleveland. Progressive Field has already provided the city with many great memories, including the Indians' clinching their first division title Sept. 8, 1995, and Tony Pena's game winning-homer in the 13th inning in Game 1 of the Division Series against Boston on Oct. 3, 1995, to give the Tribe its first postseason win since Oct. 11, 1948. The playing field is a natural-grass blend of Kentucky bluegrass. Lawrence Dolan and family trusts purchased the team in 2001 and continue to upgrade the ballpark, with features like Heritage Park, located behind center field, and the group party deck overlooking right field.
For most of its existence this place was known as Jacobs Field, or The Jake, and it remains a great place to catch a game. Tribe fans no longer sell it out every game like they did from 1995-2000, but they're still a dedicated bunch. Even if the game doesn't go well there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, as well as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum, to help you happily kill the rest of the day.
