What stadium do the Cleveland Indians play?
PROGRESSIVE FIELD, previously named Jacobs Field at 2401 Ontario Street, was opened in 1994 as part of the new Gateway Sports and Entertainment Complex intended to revitalize downtown Cleveland.
Guaranteed Rate Field is a baseball park located on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. The ballpark serves as the home ballpark for Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox, and is owned by the state of Illinois through the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority.
The ballpark was renamed League Park in 1927. By the late 1920s a new stadium was being built along the lakefront in Cleveland. The Indians decided to move to this new stadium, Cleveland Municipal Stadium on July 31, 1932.
With a peak capacity of over 100,000 spectators, AT&T Stadium has the highest capacity of any NFL stadium, while MetLife Stadium has the highest listed seating capacity at 82,500. The smallest stadium is Soldier Field with a capacity of 61,500.
In 1985, Richard and David Jacobs bought the Indians and began to lobby for a new stadium. Voters approved a bond and a new stadium for the Indians was built in downtown Cleveland. The last Indians game at Cleveland Municipal Stadium was on October 3, 1993 and the team moved to Progressive Field the following season.
