Progressive Field
Progressive Field, formerly known as Jacobs Field and located in downtown Cleveland next to the Quicken Loans Arena, is home to the Cleveland Indians. Opened in 1994 with a capacity of over 43,000, Progressive Field has some of the features of classic ballparks. The field is asymmetrical, and bleachers sit atop a 19-foot left-field wall. Because the park isn't completely enclosed, fans can look out over the buildings of downtown Cleveland.

Quicken Loans Arena
"The Q" is located next to Progressive Field in downtown Cleveland. Also opened in 1994, the Cavaliers call this building home. The arena seats 20,562, including 2,000 in the club seats. It has 92 luxury suites for ultimate comfort when catching a game.
