CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Indians are 37 days away from their home opener, but it’s never too early to think about getting more bang for your buck at Progressive Field.
The countdown is on at Progressive Field until the boys of summer return to Northeast Ohio.
“We’re certainly excited about the season we had last year and anticipate more fun at the ballpark this year,” said Anne Keegan, Assistant Director of Communications for the Indians.
Some of the fun starts at the ticket counter. The Indians announced new initiatives for season tickets including the Online On-Sale site, where fans will be able to receive the absolute lowest prices on tickets.
“It is the first access the fans will get to single game tickets before the general public and it will be on March 3rd via Indians.com registration,” Keegan said.
There is even something new for families this year called Kids Value Tickets. It’s a new ticket offer that will make it more affordable for families to come to the ballpark.
“It offers $15 of loaded value on the ticket which sort of provides some flexibility for families when they come down here if they want to get their kids a hotdog, they can get that,” added Keegan.
If you love those Indians’ promotions like bobble head night, you may want to look into Promo Pass: for a few extra bucks you’ll be guaranteed to get one of those promotional items.
“This is an opportunity for them to secure this in advance online,” said Keegan. “It will be waiting for them; they won’t have to get here early.”
Also new in 2014 is a section of the stadium dedicated to diehard Indians fans. It’s inspired by Nick Swisher. It’s located in Section 117 and it’s called ‘Brohio’.
It has its own Governor.
“It’s more than a dream come true. It’s everything I ever wanted,” said Brohio Governor Adam Gockowski. “I have always known that one day I would be signed by the Indians. I didn’t think it would be this position. I always thought it would be short-stop.”
Gockowski will be at every Friday and Saturday game during the season; he was inaugurated on Wednesday afternoon as the first Governor of Brohio.
