JD’s 2015 Ballpark Tour; Cleveland, Ohio

Part X: Progressive Field (First Visit)

After a very lengthy game at PNC Park, Mike and I knocked out and didn’t do much before the Indians game Wednesday night. The events that morning were filled with wondering how we would get tickets. I was told that one of Mike’s relatives could have free tickets for that night’s game, which was also a bobble head night! Our task was to get bobbles for the two young boys who couldn’t attend the game… but I’ll save that story for the end.

To keep an already long post somewhat short, we acquired FREE tickets for that night’s game thanks to some kind family members. Myself, Mike, and his cousin, Dan, all went to the game on a nice Wednesday night. This was Carlos Santana bobble head evening, but after visiting some excellent ballparks, how would Progressive Field compare? Was it even possible to top Great American and PNC?

Part XIII: Minute Maid Park

(AKA: Squeezing the Life Out of Me)

(AKA: Unlucky Part Thirteen)

(AKA: Finally Getting Homesick)

Brace yourself, folks. I’m going to come out and say this right now, this was probably one of the worst ballpark experiences I’ve ever had, and the only way I would come back here is if I was given free tickets and parking again. If you love this ballpark, I’m sorry… I kept an open mind about this place and was actually very excited to return to Texas. However, this particular visit highly disappointed me.
