(Cleveland Indians) The Cleveland Indians 2013 Home Opener, on April 8 at 4:05 p.m. against the New York Yankees, is sold out, marking the 21st consecutive home opener sellout and the 20th at Progressive Field, which opened in 1994.
The game sold out in six minutes, one of the fastest sellouts in Indians history. Since the Indians in 2009 moved the public on-sale date to Spring, Opening Day sellouts have become official on March 30 (2009), April 8 (2010), March 24 (2011) and March 15 (2012), another reflection of the heightened attention for 2013.
Fans wanting to attend 2013 Opening Day -- which marks the Indians’ 113th year as a charter member of the American League -- still can secure tickets by purchasing full-season ticket packages, which offer the best value and greatest savings over single-game ticket prices.
