Cleveland Indians announce next phase of stadium renovations

Wednesday August 12th, 2015

The Cleveland Indians announced details for the second phase of renovations to Progressive Field on Wednesday. 

The team will build on large-scale changes made to center and right field last year, create a new club behind home plate and add more historical touches to the park. 

In the recently renovated Right Field District, the team will add even more concessions from local restaurants and eateries. The District currently features food from Cleveland establishments such as Sweet Moses and Dynomite Burgers. 

Behind home plate, the new club will house a full bar, new concessions and a glass front for watching the game. The club, reserved for season ticket holders in the Diamond Box and Field Box Front, will even be open after games for those trying to avoid traffic. 

As was done with right field and center field last year, the team hopes the home plate renovation will open up the main concourse all around the park. The Indians also hope the new renovations will add more places in the park where people are able to watch the game while not in their seats.

Progressive Field—then Jacobs Field—opened in 1994.
