Since I was visiting Cleveland in the off-season (February 1998), I didn't know if I would be able to get a good view of inside the stadium. No tours were available, unfortunately, but I learned that passersby can peek through the iron bars at the gate near the left foul pole, and it's a surprisingly good view. The light-hued brick definitely stands out compared to most other red-brick retro ballparks. The Bob Feller statue in the plaza beyond center field, and the banners with other famous players' faces around the top of the stadium's exterior, are nice tributes. The big team logo and Jacobs Field sign at the main entrance behind home plate really add a lot of class as well.

Cleveland definately needed this ballpark after being in the "mistake by the lake." I visited this stadium on a trip with my parents and cousin in 1994. My cousin and I had press passes so we were able to be down on the field before and after the game. I know we took liberties with our passes and definately went into areas were shouldn't have been able to go in. The ballpark atmosphere was great and overall its a great field. My only problem is it is rediculous how many levels of luxury suites there are. It pushes the upper deck too far up. If for not this disadvantage, I would rate Jacob's Field at an 8 instead of a 6. The highlight was my cousin and I going down onto the field after the game. After getting locker room interviews, we went out onto the field. It was very peaceful being in an empty stadium with most of the lights off. We walked around the warning track and did video shots of the ballpark. It was also neat walking up to and along the large left field wall.

Make sure you visit "Heritage Park" out behind center field to see the newly opened Indians Hall of Fame. Also, the Bob Feller statue on the E. 9th side of the park's exterior.

This is a great park. I've gotten to watch a couple of games there. 2006 vs. Detriot (Tigers went on to lose World Series). 2007 vs. Red Sox (Return of Red Sox pitcher Lester and Sox went on to win World Series). I can't explain the feeling of watching a game there. I wish it was still Jacob's Field, but what are you gonna do? The next time I get up there to Cleveland, I will pay my respects to the old League Park.
