In their latest attempt to draw fans to the ballpark, the Indians are promoting reductions in concession prices: $4 beers, $3 hot dogs and $2 soda refills, according to CBS Sports. The team will also have 15 $1 hot dog nights throughout the season. Last season, beer was $5.50, and the average across MLB stadiums was $6.17.

"We've asked our fans what they want most in their ballpark experience at Progressive Field, and more affordable concessions prices routinely top the list,” said Indians president Mark Shapiro (via MLBlogs network). “This is a way for us to let fans know we're listening to them and that we value them.”
The Indians were 24-53 during the second half of last season and have since made a number of moves to improve the team -- they signed Nick Swisher, Mark Reynolds and Michael Bourn and traded for Trevor Bauer. So far so good: Opening day against the Blue Jays sold out in just six minutes.
