Smile Progressive Field Cleveland

Hi all-

I am a Red Sox fan living in So Cal and will be making a trip to Cleveland later this year when the Red Sox happen to be playing the Indians. I thought it might be fun to go to the game and see a new ballpark while I'm there. Just wondering if it is "safe" to wear gear from the visiting team at Progressive Field without getting hassled, threatened, etc. In most ballparks I have been to wearing a Red Sox shirt people have been totally cool and we have had a good time but, as everyone knows, there are a few parks you just should not go to wearing anything from the opposing team. I'm just trying to get a feel for the vibe there. And I don't drink beer so there will be no chance of me getting drunk and making an idiot of myself. :-)

I don't go to many Indians games but I've never seen a wrongly-attired (team-wise) fan get hassled. You'll have a good time.

The atmosphere has always been pretty family-friendly at the games I've attended, plus in the last few years I've been able to buy good last-minute seats just walking up to the window.

You'll be fine at the Indians. Just don't wear Steelers gear to a Browns game.

Iím a Reds fan, and I used to go up every season for the Reds games in Cleveland, never had a problem wearing a Reds hat.

One of my good friends came to a game with me and wasn't hassled at all. He and his whole family were in Red Sox gear, and me and my family in Indians gear. Just a group of folks watching a game.

Out of curiosity, is this the series in September? My Red Sox fan friend will be coming to town for that one... should be a good one, if the Indians can figure out their bullpen issues.

Yes, hopefully in September. It should be a good series. I will always be a big fan of Terry Francona! :-)
