#RallyTogether Tips, Info for World Series Games 1 and 2 at Progressive Field

The American League champion Cleveland Indians share tips for fans to #RallyTogether for World Series Games 1 and 2, which will be held at Progressive Field Tuesday and Wednesday. The 112th Fall Classic between the Indians and the National League champion Chicago Cubs will be aired live beginning at 7:30PM ET on FOX.

Fans are encouraged to #RockRed to all World Series games at Progressive Field, and will receive a #RallyTogether towel upon entry to World Series home games.

Due to the large crowds expected both at Progressive Field and in downtown Cleveland due also to the Cavaliers home opener and ring ceremony, the Indians recommend fans arrive as early as possible.

The club also highly recommends taking Greater Cleveland RTA to avoid traffic issues and potentially costly parking charges. Please check with RTA for complete schedules and to make your transportation plans. All Rapid lines will run an hour after final pitch, even if games go to extra innings. Additionally, the RTA walkway to Tower City will open at 2PM prior to each game's first pitch.

Gates for Tuesday and Wednesday night's game will open at 5:30PM. Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 7:30PM to enjoy all pregame festivities.
