Progressive Field (Formerly Jacobs Field) is a world-class baseball field that is located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Since it first opened in 1994 under the name Ã¢ÂÂJacobs FieldÃ¢ÂÂ, it has been the home to major league baseball by way of Cleveland Indians tickets. Despite a 2008 name change, today, some old-school fans still call the park by its old nickname, Ã¢ÂÂThe JakeÃ¢ÂÂ. Many fans also refer to this park as Ã¢ÂÂThe ProgÃ¢ÂÂ or Ã¢ÂÂThe ProÃ¢ÂÂ for short.
The Prog consistently receives rave reviews from long-time baseball aficionados and newcomers alike. In fact, in 2008 it was rated as the MLB's best ballpark in the widely respected sports publication, Sports Illustrated fan opinion poll. This stadium has garnered significant praise by even the most critical fans.
Featuring a retro-modern styling, this stadium appeals to those who prefer classic, traditional baseball park design, while also being extremely attractive to those who prefer modern amenities and features. Progressive Field was the second Ã¢ÂÂretroÃ¢ÂÂ style ballpark to be constructed, following the success of Baltimore, Maryland's Oriole Park at Camden Yards. This urban ballpark offers baseball fans the opportunity to enjoy an intimate, comfortable game of baseball in a no-frills setting. Proper elevation between rows makes the view from The ProÃ¢ÂÂs 34,345 seats much better than other stadiums, while increased legroom also adds a significant amount of additional comfort.
