INDIANAPOLIS, March 16, 2015 – The 113th consecutive season of Indianapolis Indians baseball begins on Apr. 9 with a 7:05 p.m. home game versus the Columbus Clippers and will include several special promotions including the fifth annual a 60-degree weather guarantee, Bike to the Ballpark, a post game fireworks show and more.
The Indians guarantee the outside temperature will be at least 60 degrees at game time or fans in attendance may exchange their April 9, 2015 ticket for any remaining home game that month. WTHR-TV is the official weather partner of the Tribe.
Even before the first pitch, fans are invited to be part of Bike to the Ballpark. The annual tradition begins at downtown’s Sun King Brewery. The supervised 1.7-mile ride is free and open to riders of all ages. Once inside Victory Field fans age 21 and older may celebrate the first tapping of the new season’s Sun King Indians Lager. Game tickets are not part of Bike to the Ballpark but can be purchased in advance or on the day of the game.
Immediately following the game, and with the beautiful downtown Indianapolis skyline as a backdrop, the night sky over Victory Field will come to life with a fireworks spectacular – the first of 14 this season.
In addition, as fans arrive at the ballpark the first 10,000 people will receive a free 2015 Indianapolis Indians schedule magnet. The fireworks show and schedule magnets are compliments of PPG Paints.
The Indians home opener not only starts the Indians’ season, it also launches the team’s longest home stand of the 2015 campaign – nine games all against International League West Division foes – giving central Indiana baseball fans ample opportunity to cure any lingering symptoms of cabin fever. In addition to hosting Columbus, Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians for games through Apr. 12, the Tribe also hosts the Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers), Apr. 13-14, and the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati Reds), Apr. 15-17.
Single-game tickets are available for all 72 Indians home games by visiting IndyIndians.com where buying at least a day in advance saves fans $2 on each ticket, or by calling the Victory Field box office at (317) 269-2282. Walk-up tickets may be purchased starting March 23 Mon-Fri 8 a.m.-6 p.m. or Saturdays in the Hot Corner Gift Shop from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
