The Indians have been the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates since 2005 and play their home games at Victory Field. Located at 501 W. Maryland St. in Indianapolis, the stadium seats over 12,000 spectators, with a capacity over 14,000 including standing-room-only and outfield lawn seating. The stadium, opened in 1996, is located near Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, and the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers and WNBA’s Indiana Fever.
This marks the second stint for the Indians as the Pirates’ farm team, with the first being from 1948 to 1951. They have also been affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers, Cincinnati Reds, Montreal Expos, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians and Boston Braves. The Indians are the second-oldest minor-league franchise in baseball, founded in 1902.
Single-game tickets at Victory Field start at $10 for adults and $9 for kids 14 and under on the lawn; reserved seats are $12 for adults and $11 for kids 14 and under, and box seats are $16 for adults and $15 for kids 14 and under.
