Progressive Field Is Embarrassingly Empty for Diamondbacks-Indians Game

The Cleveland Indians had to do without much of a home-field advantage Wednesday afternoon against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Tuesday's game was rained out, so the two teams played a doubleheader the following day. The picture above is from Game 1 of the doubleheader.

See any similarities to the 1989 classic Major League? Maybe the broadcasters can add a little bit of energy to the stadium for the folks at home (skip ahead to the 1:44 mark):

As shows, the Indians rank 29th in the league in attendance, at 18,640 per game at home. That's ahead of only Tampa Bay, at 17,700 per home game.

The Indians took Game 1 3-2, before dropping the nightcap 1-0.
