Progressive Field ticket camp out not unusual, team says

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - On Wednesday morning, a sizable line hugged Progressive Field, with some in line claiming to have been waiting since the third inning of Game 6.

For those who have forced it out of their memory, that's when the Cubs went up big after a grand slam off of Dan Otero (who had entered the game in relief of Josh Tomlin). The Cubs went on to win, forcing a World Series Game 7 in Cleveland on Wednesday.

Those in line claim there was a ticket release at some point Tuesday, and said they were waiting in line to acquire their ticket to Game 7, slated for 8 p.m. EST.

The Indians said it is not unusual for people to camp out and hope there are tickets released after all holds are turned back in.

One fan told Cleveland 19 News he'd be willing to pay $2,500 for a ticket and said it was worth spending the night for.

"Oh yeah. I'm a diehard. I really want two tickets. I want to bring my father to the game, he's been a diehard fan. We got to see the Cavaliers championship, now the Indians are gonna do it," said James Slaughenhoupt.
