INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis Indians single game tickets for the 2018 season go on sale on IndyIndians.com starting today (March 1, 2018). Highlights on the Tribe's 70-game home schedule include three player bobblehead giveaways, 13 fireworks nights (including an Independence Day celebration on July 4) and five Super Hero Nights with characters from both the MARVEL and DC Comics universes, including Black Panther on April 21.

The 2018 season will be full of exciting changes on the field and around the ballpark. New manager Brian Esposito enters his first season in Indy's top job, but not his first season in Indy. He joined the Pittsburgh Pirates system as a player/coach in 2013 and served as an additional coach in Indianapolis later that year.
Esposito owns a 233-195 (.544) record in four seasons as a manager in Minor League Baseball. He spent the 2017 campaign as manager for Short-Season A West Virginia, compiling a 40-35 record en route to a second-place finish in the New York-Penn League's Pinckney Division. Esposito logged a 13-year professional playing career that featured stints with the Boston, Anaheim, Texas, St. Louis, Colorado, Houston and Chicago (NL) organizations.
Around Victory Field, the suite renovation project will be complete in time for Opening Night. The list of improvements includes new flooring, lighting, décor, in-suite mobile charging stations, televisions, appliances and furniture, plus expanded serving space and a refresh of lobbies, common areas and restrooms. In addition, the first base side will feature a new four-room collection of Skyline Suites for daily rental and a 75-foot timeline mural highlighting the rich history of Indians baseball in Indianapolis. The project follows the installation of a state-of-the-art video and sound system last offseason.
