The Indians have announced that Snow Days will be returning to Progressive Field this winter.
An important addition to Indians Snow Days this year will be The Frozen Diamond, a regulation-sized ice rink situated on the infield covering homeplate and stretching down the first base line. The Frozen Diamond will be utilized throughout Indians Snow Days culminating with The Frozen Diamond Faceoff, a hockey game between The Ohio State University Buckeyes and the University of Michigan Wolverines at Progressive Field on Sunday, January 15 beginning at 5:05 p.m.
The Frozen Diamond Faceoff will be the first hockey game in Progressive Field history and the first-ever outdoor college hockey game in the State of Ohio. The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA)-sanctioned game will be the second of a two-game series between the two schools with the first game being held in Columbus on Friday, January 13, 2012.
