INDIANAPOLIS - Mother Nature might be chilly now, but warmer days are ahead. In fact, the Indianapolis Indians guarantee it.

Single game tickets for the 2019 season of Indianapolis Indians baseball are now on sale, including the return of an Opening Night promotion unlike any other on the schedule - the Tribe's 60 Degree Weather Guarantee. If the temperature is below 60 degrees at first pitch on Opening Night (Thursday, April 11, 2019), each fan in attendance gets a ticket to another April game of their choice.

"The Indians are excited to offer this promotion again, especially with this week's snow and frigid temperatures reminding us it's still winter," said Indians President and General Manager Randy Lewandowski. "Last season we had snow on Opening Night, a memorable experience with images of bundled fans and accumulating snow on the field. Our fingers are crossed for warm and sunny weather come April 11."

Other highlights on the Tribe's 70-game schedule include three Prospects Nights, five Bark in the Park games, the annual Independence Day Celebration, and Razor Shines Weekend when the fan favorite returns to Indy.

The schedule also features character appearances from the world of movies and TV, including Star Wars, PJ Masks, Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, PAW Patrol, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. New on the promotions calendar this year are an Easter Egg Hunt, Princess Day. Peppa Pig and Father's Day Catch on the Field.

Daily Deals return, with the addition of Thirsty Thursdays. On select Thursdays throughout the season, fans can enjoy low prices on drinks, including $2 Pepsi fountain drinks, $3 domestic draft beers, and $5 premium and craft draft beers. In addition, $1 from every Sun King draft pint sold goes to a different nonprofit organization every Thirsty Thursday.

Indians ticket prices remain some of the most affordable for sports entertainment in Indy. Box seats are $17, Reserved seats are $13, and tickets to sit in the Toyota Lawn are $11. Plus, fans can save $2 off tickets purchased before game day.

Memberships for the Knot Hole Kids Club are only $18 and include a ticket to every Indianapolis Indians home game (subject to availability), a t-shirt, the chance to run the bases after every Sunday home game, and the chance to be an on-field Play Ball Kid.

Single game tickets and details on group outings are available on or by calling the Victory Field Box Office at (317) 269-2282 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Victory Field's exterior ticket windows will serve walk-up customers beginning Monday, March 25.
