Though I still call it Jacob’s Field, Progressive Field is an awesome ballpark to catch a game in. Don’t let some pundits steer you wrong about Cleveland, there are plenty of places to check out in this city!
What makes this stadium unique?
Progressive Field has a surprisingly intimate feel to it. The stadium is quite modern though with an impressive scoreboard above the left field bleachers. During rallies and times of need, you can hear the steady beat of a drum from Tribe diehard John Adams who attends nearly every home game. Night games are a treat with the 19 “toothbrush” light towers that light up the field with the city glowing in the left field background. Fans can’t miss The Terrence Club, which breaks up the monotony of the upper left field deck. Unfortunately, on game days this restaurant is members only. Heritage Park in right-center field opened in 2007 allowing fans to see past Tribe greats and historic moments in the club’s history.
