Cleveland, OH—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 6 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.
