Today, the Cleveland Indians announced that local favorites Melt Bar & Grilled, Barrio and Sweet Moses will serve up their unique food at Progressive Field in 2015!
These new food selections will be located in the renovated Right Field District of the ballpark and provide fans with another fan-friendly option.
Melt, founded 6 years ago in Lakewood, will offer five of their most popular sandwiches: Kindergarten (grilled cheese), Chorizo & Potato (spicy sausage and potato hash), Parmageddon (pierogi, onion and sauerkraut), BBQ Pork (with onion rings) and Mushroom Melt (garlic mushrooms, onions and arugula).
Barrio, with locations in Tremont and Lakewood, has gained notoriety for its casual atmosphere and fresh, flavorful tacos which fans can now enjoy while watching a game live at Progressive Field.
Sweet Moses, named after Cleveland’s founder, will bring classic ice cream sundaes and more to the ballpark including a sundae featuring homemade caramel corn and peanuts atop a salted caramel ice cream.
Our Twitter followers were pretty excited about the announcement. Here are some of our favorite reaction tweets!
Snow has fallen and temps are dropping, but that doesn’t mean our construction crews are stopping. (That was kind of poetic.)
Check out the latest photos from our ongoing ballpark enhancement project — as you’ll see, the bullpens continue to take shape, as does the two-story bar in right field and the new group area in the former Upper Reserved in right field.

Progressive Field has received high marks from respected family-focused travel magazine ABC Travel Guides for Kids, which has named Cleveland its No. 1 travel destination for kids in 2015.
The magazine visited Cleveland last August, and said, “Progressive Field might be the most family friendly ballpark in the country.”
The Indians offer many family-friendly attractions at the ballpark, including the Kids Clubhouse – which will be expanded to two levels during the ongoing enhancements at Progressive Field – along with low concessions prices that include $3 hot dogs every day. (Fans also are permitted to bring a factory-sealed bottle of water and juice boxes into the ballpark in soft-sided coolers.)
Additionally, KeyBank presents Kids Fun Day every Sunday home game, including fun games near the Kids Clubhouse; kids also can run the bases after every Sunday home game, presented by Cleveland Clinic Children’s.
You may remember this picture from last week, from our #12DaysofTribe contest on social media. (Thanks to Dustin Dykes for sending it in!)
Well, as it turns out, that couple in the picture has a pretty cool story.
When she saw the picture, the couple’s daughter, Jill McGarr, contacted us on Twitter and said, “Those are my parents!”
So, we wanted some background. Here’s what Jill emailed in:
Their names are John (Jake) and Judy Jacobson.
The 70 signifies that year (2005) when they both turned 70… my sister and I thought it would be cool for them to have matching jerseys.
My mom is a Cleveland native. Dad was born in Grassflat, Pa., and moved here in elementary school. He met my mom in fifth grade. They have been together ever since.
They are alumni of Rhodes High School.
As far as I know, they have been Tribe fans their whole lives!
They have been Season Ticket Holders since 1993, I believe… I know they had at least one year at the old stadium. They share their seats with a few other people, but they are the administrators. I believe they go to at
least 10 games per year.
Next year (2015) they are both turning 80. We were wondering how we could top their 70th gifts!
This, we think you’ll agree, is what being a baseball fan is all about: Creating memories, connecting generations and celebrating families.
Happy 80th birthdays, Jake and Judy!

Workers were in high gear at the ballpark on Monday thanks to temperatures in the 50s — in mid-December! Construction progress continues, with structural support in place in the new bar area in right field, as well as continued progress on the new bullpens in center field.
As reminder, for full renderings of the finished project and a live video stream of construction is available by clicking here.
