Well, it looks like we can save debates about Cleveland Indians attendance for at least a little bit. The team announced via its Twitter account that their Opening Day game on Friday April 4 against the Minnesota Twins is sold out. Not only that, Tribe fans managed to sell out Progressive Field in just 15 minutes.
Opening Day is officially a sellout! 15 minutes – not bad, Tribe fans!

The Indians followed up with a press release indicating that this is the 22nd straight sold out Home Opener and the 21st at Progressive Field. Not a bad little streak for this team and this town.
Hopefully, the play on the field leads to lots of meaningful games and more than one playoff game for the fans to sell out this fall.
