Progressive Field is Sensory Inclusive

Progressive Field is now certified as "sensory inclusive," after the Indians partnered with Kulture City out of Alabama, to ensure all programs, activities, and events that the ballpark hosts accommodate the needs of fans with sensory issues.

Part of the certification process was ensuring that all Progressive Field staff be trained by medical professionals to better recognize guests with sensory needs. Now, the stadium is equipped with sensory bags, that include noise-canceling headphones, weighted lap pads, and more.

Progressive Field joins other local establishments, including Quicken Loans Arena and the Akron Zoo as sensory inclusive. 

See the full press release from the Indians below. 

--  

The Cleveland Indians have partnered with KultureCity to make Progressive Field and all of the programs and events that the ballpark hosts to be sensory inclusive. This new initiative will promote an accommodating and positive experience for all guests and fans with a sensory issue who visit the ballpark. 

The certification process entailed the staff at Progressive Field being trained by leading medical professionals on how to recognize those guests and fans with sensory needs and how to handle a sensory overload situation.

Sensory bags, equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads will also be available to all guests at the ballpark who may feel overwhelmed by the environment and can be checked out from Fan Services.

Sensory sensitivities or challenges with sensory regulation are often experienced by individuals with autism, dementia, PTSD and other similar conditions. One of the major barriers for these individuals is sensitivity to over stimulation and noise, which is an enormous part of the environment in a venue like Progressive Field. With its new certification, the ballpark is now better prepared to assist guests with sensory sensitivities in having the most comfortable and accommodating experience possible when attending any event at the ballpark 

“To know that you soon will be able to see families attend a baseball game, a true community binding experience, with their loved ones who have a sensory challenge and who were not able to previously attend, is truly a heartwarming moment,” said Traci Johnson, Executive Director of KultureCity. “Our communities are what shapes our lives and to know that the Indians are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everyone, no matter their ability, is included in their community is amazing.”

About KultureCity

KultureCity is a leading non-profit recognized nationwide for using their resources to revolutionize and effect change in the community for those with sensory needs; not just those with Autism. In the past year alone, KultureCity has created several sensory inclusive venues and events including the NFL Pro-Bowl, NFL Super Bowl, 16 NBA arenas, 5 NFL stadiums, 5 NHL arenas and countless zoos, science centers and aquariums across the nation.

AUDIO Jim Thome Talks HOF Nod

One of the Tribe's most popular and productive players will be enshrined in Cooperstown in July, and had a chance to reflect on his time in Cleveland with the media and fans.

Jim Thome was back in Cleveland to answer questions from the media one week after he recieved his call to the Hall.

He talked about the pride he felt in being a first-ballot Hall of Famer and how he accomplished that feat with the help of his teammates and coaching staff.

"The man gets the honor, but it's so much more than about just the individual honor," he said.

 

 Thome and Bob Feller are the only two players in Indians history to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot.

Thome retired with 612 home runs and five All-Star appearances in 22 seasons in the Major Leagues.

One of Jim's mentors, former Tribe hitting coach and manager Charlie Manuel spoke with him before he received the call to Cooperstown. Thome recalled how Charlie helped build up not only his confidence, but the other players around him.

"Charlie's greatest gift is that he could build anybody up to be great, at least make them think they're great, and that's what I love most about him."

Thome is one of six members in this year's Hall of Fame Class, joining Trevor Hoffman, Chipper Jones, Vladamir Guererro, along with Jack Morris and Alan Trammell, who were elected this past December.

Thome had a sit-down interview with the radio voice of the Indians, Tom Hamilton before he spoke with the media. That interview can be seen on Sports Time Ohio at a later time.

The event was held at the Westfield Insurance Studio inside the Idea Center in Cleveland's Playhouse Square.

He says he does not know who will present him for enshrinement in July, but that he will speak with his wife Andrea, who was in the audience, and decide that at a later time.

In addition, Jim says he will wear the Block C at his induction in light of the news surrounding Chief Wahoo's removal earlier in the week.

AUDIO Bobby D Discusses Chief Wahoo Decision

Cleveland Indians Senior V.P. of Public Affairs Bobby DiBiasio spoke at the 1590 WAKR Cleveland Indians Luncheon at the Duck Club.

Bobby D was Canal Park Wednesday to discuss the team as well as the recent news surrounding the removal of Chief Wahoo in 2019.

 

Published in Sam and Brad

The Cleveland Indians have announced that after the 2018 season, they will abandon Chief Wahoo, removing the controversial logo from caps and sleeves. 

Chief Wahoo has been the polarizing centerpiece of a long-running debate on whether or not the logo is racist. At the start of every Major League Baseball season, protesters gather outside of Progressive Field to voice their opinion on the logo as fans flock to the stadium for the home opener. 

The logo was at the center of a national debate and was scrutinized heavily after a lawsuit was filed during the American League Championship Series between the Indians and the Blue Jays. The suit, filed in a Toronto court, was an effort to have the Chief Wahoo logo AND the Indians name banned from appearing on Canadian television during the series. Several Canadian broadcasters, and some national sports TV broadcasters, went as far as not saying the club name "Indians" during reports. The court case was tossed out by a Toronto judge. 

While the team will not wear the Chief Wahoo logo beyond the 2018 season, the club will still retain the rights and hats and jerseys will still be sold at team shops and through other vendors both online and in-store.

Indians To Extend Safety Net at Progressive Field

The Cleveland Indians announced Wedensday that they will extend the safety netting at Progressive Field to the ends of each dugout before the start of the upcoming 2018 season. 

According to a press release, the mesh netting will extend from section 164 along the third base line around to section 140 down the first base line. 

The move comes after MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred made a push for all ballparks around the league to do the same, after a young girl was hit with a foul ball, reportedly traveling 105 miles per hour, during a game at Yankees Stadium in New York back in September. She suffered multiple facial fractures. 

In a press release, Indians Vice President of Ballpark Operations Jim Folk said, "We remain committed to delivering the best experience for our fans at Progressive Field. Safety is our number one priority and these measures should balance that commitment to safety with the interactive nature of our game, something we know is important to our fans."
