Visiting Cleveland during baseball season? Don't be surprised if a bunch of contagiously optimistic Clevelanders high-five you while walking around Downtown. Expect red-white-and-blue revelry in packed bars, pouring out onto patios and emitting a unique brand of local pride.
Sure, they’ve had a few drinks, but they’re mostly just glad the Indians are back in full swing. For Cleveland baseball fans, hope springs eternal in 2019. How could it not? After all, we’re favored to win our fourth straight American League Central Division title and compete for another World Series run.
If that wasn’t enough, here are six more reasons we're stoked that baseball is returning to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.
1994 marked the beginning of a new and exciting era for baseball in Cleveland with the opening of Jacobs Field. The next 25 years saw 455 consecutive sellouts, 10 Central Division titles and three World Series appearances, not to mention a name change to Progressive Field, a contemporary facelift and too many amazing Cleveland sports moments to count. Get down to the ballpark and relive those classic baseball memories while making new memories of your own.
One of the team's best deals remains the $15 standing-room-only District Ticket. Not only is the first drink on the house, but ticket-holders are encouraged to hang out at the two-story, right field Corner Bar, which boasts dozens of delicious local and craft beers, as well as unparalleled camaraderie.
The Indians' 2019 promotional schedule is chock full of beloved standbys, including Dollar Dog nights, entertainment-packed Right Field District Block Parties and 13 fireworks nights. This year's array of free swag includes bobbleheads of current players, some sweet jerseys, freezer mugs and 2019 MLB® All-Star Game® tote bags. Pregame in the District, Progressive Field's version of happy hour, also returns with $2(!) 12-ounce domestic cans from 5-7pm before select weekend games.
Although the Indians' 2019 roster will look different than 2018's model—as Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Andrew Miller, Cody Allen and more depart —the team's continued strength will be its nearly unhittable rotation of starting pitchers. Two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber leads the pack and he and fellow aces Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco are all expected to be Cy Young contenders again this year. Add to that Mike Clevinger and Shane Bieber (11-5 as a rookie), two of the best young right-handers in the game, and you have the makings of a historically great staff.
Sure, the roster has seen turnover but that means additions, too. Tribe fans have been waiting to see top prospect Oscar Mercado for some time now and with his recent call-up, the young outfielder gets to show the Progressive Field faithful what he's got. 2019 also sees the return of fan-favorite Carlos Santana – “Slamtana” to his friends – one of the heroes of our 2016 World Series run.
Cleveland is proud to be the host of the 2019 MLB All-Star Game, as the best in baseball come to town to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Midsummer Classic. The last time we hosted in 1997, current first base coach and Tribe legend Sandy Alomar, Jr. smacked a memorable home run to give the AL the win and became the first player in All-Star history to win MVP as member of the host team. Expect more memories to be made July 9th at Progressive Field.
