For many peolpe, Valentine's Day is their favorite early-year holiday. For me, it's the next day - today, Feb. 15 - the day that pitchers and catchers officially report to spring training. Other people send out Valentine's cards. Me? I send out Happy Pitchers and Catchers Report to Spring Training Day!
A little crazy? Sure. But as of today, I'm counting down the fact that there are just 45 days remaining until the Indians Home Opener against the Chicago White Sox at 3:05 p.m. on April 1st. While I continue counting down, the Tribe sent out an email today detailing their ticket options:
Tickets will become available for all 81 Cleveland Indians regular-season home games at Progressive Field beginning Monday, February 28 at 10 a.m. As the Indians look to create memories, connect generations and celebrate families at Progressive Field, fan value is at the forefront with tickets set to go on sale to general public in only 13 days.
Nearly half of Progressive Field seats will be at reduced prices, with 22% of entire ballpark featuring a price reduction of $8 or more.
