Indians release plans for 2017 single-game ticket sales

The off-season signings of Edwin Encarnacion and Boone Logan were designed to improve the Indians roster in preparation for the 2017 campaign. In addition, the organization hopes a better team on the field will attract larger attendance figures from the Cleveland faithful. The IBI's John Alfes has the latest regarding single-game ticket sales...

The Cleveland Indians had the third lowest attendance in all of baseball with a total of 1,591,667 fans over the span of 81 regular season home games in 2016.

Not only does this equate to approximately 19,650 people per contest, but it left nearly 45% of the Progressive Field seats empty throughout the year.

With the signings of Edwin Encarnacion and Boone Logan in mind, the franchise has high hopes these attendance figures will boost to substantially higher levels in 2017.

The Tribe officially announced their single-game tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 AM ET on Monday, March 6 (online only). No sales will be conducted at team shops or ticket offices until Monday, March 13.

Fans are encouraged to purchase season tickets in order to receive priority access for the single-game sale. The deadline for this particular special is Monday, Feb. 20 at 5 PM ET.

Opening day at Progressive Field is slated for Apr. 11 at 4:10 PM ET against the Chicago White Sox.
