Indy Indians host fans for first time in 619 days

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It was an exciting night for downtown Indianapolis nightlife on Tuesday night with the long-awaited return of the Indians at Victory Field.

The team welcomed back fans for the first time since Aug. 31, 2019, a span of 619 days.

Things are a little bit different due to the pandemic.

For the month of May, capacity is capped at 25% which means about 3,500 fans spaced around the stadium with even designated spots on the lawn.

In some places including the bathroom, there’s one way traffic.

Tickets are contactless. Concessions are cashless with a limited menu.

Most notably, masks are required for everyone over the age of 2 unless you are actively eating or drinking in your seat. This is also a special year for the Indians with this season being the 25th for Victory Field. If things go well, the team hopes to increase capacity in June.

Tuesday night’s game was a sell out and Saturday’s is already sold out, but other games this week still have tickets available.
