The Cleveland Indians will celebrate their home opener at Progressive Field on Tuesday, April 11, and hours ahead of tonight’s season opener at the Texas Rangers, the organization announced plans to recognize the reigning American League champions.
From the recognition of the 2016 American League Championship to the bringing together of Cleveland sports greats, the Indians have a little bit of everything planned for their 24th home opener at Progressive Field.
During the pregame ceremony, the Indians’ players and coaches will receive their American League Championship rings. Then, they will raise a flag in center field and unveil a commemorative banner in the right field terraces.
Fans are encouraged to be in their seats at 3 p.m., one hour ahead of the scheduled first-pitch time of 4 p.m., to see the festivities.
