CLEVELAND-- A sure sign that spring is here? Media Day at Progressive Field. The Cleveland Indians unveiled the Collection Auto Club.
The 5,000 square foot facility was created out of 10 private suites. Available through season ticket purchases, the club will offer a wide array of gourmet food and beverages.
Vice President of Media Relations Bob DiBiasio says the fans are looking for value. “There's fans who just want to come to the games and eat and have it affordable, which is why we created the 4,3,2,1, concession initiative with four dollar beers, and three dollar hot dogs, two dollar refills on the soda products, so the whole spectrum of fans are looking for different things, and it's our job to make sure that we listen to them loudly and clearly and react to their wants and needs.”
Also new, a terraced deck behind home plate, featuring tables and chairs for a more game-watching and dining experience.
This year’s schedule features 20 giveaways, up from 11 in 2012 and will include bobble heads, player jerseys, fireworks displays, rally alley and kids fun days.
The Indians’ Social Suite is back, and has moved to the first base side of the diamond. And the Indians have added to their social media lineup with a Family Social Suite, just adjacent to the Kids Clubhouse.
