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 ESPN.com 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.
