Cleveland Indians - Home Stadiums



A. The Cleveland Indians franchise was established in 1901. The franchise was established in 1901 as a founding member of the American League. The team has been known as:
Cleveland Blues 1901
Cleveland Broncos 1902
Cleveland Naps 1903-1914
Cleveland Indians 1915-Present
Note: The history of the Indians’ team nickname is the subject of some debate, largely because nicknames were somewhat unofficial in baseball’s early years.

B. The Indians have played in three home stadiums:
1. League Park / Dunn Field, Cleveland
1901-46


2. Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Cleveland
1932-93


3. Jacobs Field / Progressive Field, Cleveland
1994-Present


C. For more information on the Indians, you should bookmark these two great websites:

D. Celebrate the Indians' uniform history by owning a piece of history:
If you love the Cleveland Indians and the history of the Indians franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic uniforms as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 17 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 17 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out.

These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). Each piece can be bought one of three ways:
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left)
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version)
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)



If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our Cleveland Indians YouTube video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=nseG9-WvBRU or go directly to the artwork website www.heritagesportsart.com/Cleveland-Indians-c141/ where you can see and purchase the artwork.

And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at www.heritagesportsart.com (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/user/ssillcox

E. Stadium artwork
Please note that the actual original, hand drawn pen and ink sketches used for the 3 ballpark images shown above are available for sale as a complete collection to one Indians fan. If you are interested in being the owner of this complete and original collection of Cleveland Indians home ballpark images, please contact me by email ssillcox@rogers.com and I can explain how they can all be framed in one beautiful piece.

And please search my blog archive http://heritagejerseys.blogspot.com/ for other blogs on the history of the Indians.
