Stadium Opened: 1994
Capacity: 45,199
Dimensions: LF- 325 ft.  CF- 405 ft.   RF- 325 ft.
Surface: Natural Grass
Former Names of Ballpark: Jacobs Field


Parking: The park is located right off I-90. There are 30,000 spaces located within a 15 minute walk of the park. In 2008, prices ranged from $5 to $25.

Heritage Park: Located in centerfield, Heritage Park honors the Indians' past. Heritage Park contains 38 memorable moments in club history. Players like Cy Young and Bob Feller are honored.

 

Concessions: Good selection of concessions available. At "Burgers Loaded", you can choose from a huge variety of toppings for your hamburger or cheeseburger. At "Cleats", there are chicken wings available in BBQ, Buffalo, or Kentucky Bourbon. Many of the concessions stands have combo meal prices (which include fries and a drink). There are also some unique items like fried Twinkies and chicken and waffle sandwiches. I have heard that the ice cream from Strickland's Frozen Custard stand is excellent.

 

Video Board: Installed in 2004, the video board is 149 feet wide and 36 feet wide.

 

Downtown View: The skyline is blocked slightly by the enormous videoboard in left field.

 

Bullpens: Located in right centerfield. The bullpens run perpendicular to the outfield wall and contain three mounds, instead of the usual two.

Visiting Bullpen

 

Toothbrushes: The 19 light towers remind me of toothbrushes.

 

"The Drummer": John Adams, a drummer, sits in the top row of the left field bleachers and plays a bass drum to rally the Indians. He has been doing this since 1973 in Cleveland Stadium. The team actually had a bobble head promotion for John Adams.

Too Many Luxury Suites: The park contains 122 luxury suites. The multiple levels of suites forces the upper deck to be higher than most other parks.
