Indians debut sensory room at Progressive Field

CLEVELAND-- The Cleveland Indians unveiled the new sensory room at Progressive Field on Friday.

The ballpark, which is already certified as sensory inclusive, partnered with KultureCity, a nationwide non-profit that promotes accessibility for those with autism.

Tribe starting pitcher Trevor Bauer donated to help make the room possible.

"The more better we can spread the job of baseball to, the better. That's what today is all about," Bauer said.

The sensory room is located in the Kids Clubhouse. Sensory bags, containing noise canceling headphones, fidget toys, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads, are also available.

"They can come out to the ballpark, go to a baseball game and enjoy it the same way other people go out to a baseball game and enjoy it, that's the special part of it," Bauer. "It means a lot. It's hard to put into words."

KultureCity worked with the Akron Zoo, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Quicken Loans Arena on similar projects.
