The sellout marks the 21st consecutive sellout and the 20th at Progressive Field, which opened in 1994. The game sold out in six minutes, which is one of the fastest sellouts in Cleveland Indians history.
Fans looking to attend the game can still get tickets for opening day from the Indians if they purchase a season ticket plan; otherwise secondary markets remain their only other option.
Cleveland had a very busy offseason adding the likes of manager Terry Francona and signing free agents, Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher, Mark Reynolds, Jason Giambi, Dice-K, and others. Interest in the Indians entering the season has not been this high in many years. Production on the field will be needed to keep it going as the season progresses.
