Take me out to the ballgame, take me out to the crowd! Today, we’re going to do just that, but first, we’re traveling back in time. Surely you know that Progressive Field (or, The Jake, as many still call it) is not the first official home of the Cleveland Indians. It’s still a young field compared to its predecessor, and it was at Cleveland’s former ballpark that many countless moments in history were made. Are you ready for a trip through time? Just remember to root, root, root for the Indians along the way.
