Night at Progressive Field: Cleveland Indians vs Toronto Blue Jays review

Night at Progressive Field: Cleveland Indians vs Toronto Blue Jays review

If you were to ask me what my favorite city is in the US…I would without a doubt mention Cleveland, OH.  Now only is it about an hour from me, but there is so much to do in this amazing city.  While our weather hasn’t exactly been the greatest this summer, there is always something to do in Cleveland.  We have the Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers that play at the Quicken Loans arena…attending one of those games is always so much fun!

Then we also have the amazing Cleveland Indians.  I’ve been an Indians fan for as long as I can remember.  I will definitely say that my heart was broke last November (it was actually my birthday) when we lost game 7 of the World Series.  However we’re back, we always are…and I have no doubt that something amazing will happen again this year.

While the team is off to a rough start, there is no doubt that attending a game at Progressive Field is always one of the most fun things you can do in Cleveland.  I bought tickets in March for the game on July 22 against the Toronto Blue Jays.  It was a promo night (Jason Kipnis bobblehead) and it was also fireworks night.

But like I said, the weather hasn’t been the greatest this summer in Ohio…it’s always so predictable.  We always say that if you hate Ohio weather, just wait an hour.  We’ve been known to have all four seasons in one day!!  Well…the weather forecast for the day wasn’t too promising (ugh)…but it seemed to somewhat “clear up” one our way to the stadium.  However, as we were waiting in line to enter the stadium, the clouds ROLLED in…and the largest raindrops came down.  :(  LOL  We made it in the stadium OK…and it did seem to calm down a bit.

As we made our way to our seats, walking through the stadium, it’s hard to not get excited about the team, the game, and the environment!  SO much fun!!  Looking at the excited fans, the banners, the signs…I wish I took more pictures!  I hadn’t been to an Indians game in about 10 years (I believe).  I think I’ve been to maybe 5 games total (I wish I lived closer because I’d be there all the time).

Of course we all know that when you attend a game at the ballpark…you have to try some good food.  Forget the basic hot dogs, cotton candy, and nachos…Progressive Field has some amazing food booths to try!  We tried a local place called Momocho! It is located in the heart of Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood and is known for house-made guacamoles, salsas, delicious tacos and unique margaritas. Their booth at the ballpark offers fans quesadillas along with a ballpark favorite – nachos with made to order tortilla chips topped with creamy queso fundido, slow cooked meats and unique salsas!  It was DELICIOUS!!  :)

On to the game…It was the Indians’ pitcher Danny Salazar’s first game back from the DL and he was brilliant after missing seven weeks with a right shoulder strain.  He faced seven scoreless innings with eight strikeouts and only let four balls get out of the infield.  It was a tough hitting game for both teams, but the Indians managed to score one run, however the Blue Jays tied the game in the eighth with a home run off our Andrew Miller.  We ended up going into the bottom of the 10th inning…it started POURING down rain, but on the seventh pitch, the Indians’ Lindor launched his first career walk-off homer to propel the Indians over the Blue Jays, 2-1!!  SUCH a neat sight to see!!  Was so thrilling and exciting and it’s always nice seeing your team get a W!!

SO much fun…such a good time…and W to end the night!  :)  While I was bummed that my favorite, Jason Kipnis, was on the DL, I did end up with a great souvenir and a great game to watch!  If you’re ever in Cleveland…you need to attend the great atmosphere that Progressive Field has to offer!
