The Indianapolis Indians have announced Victory Field will host a Major League Baseball exhibition game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds. The game is scheduled for April 2.
“This game will be among the premier professional baseball attractions ever held in Central Indiana. What an exciting way to begin our 20th season of professional baseball at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis,” Indians Vice President of Baseball and Administrative Affairs Cal Burleson said.
“The Pirates are thrilled to play in front of the outstanding fans of the Indianapolis Indians in Victory Field, one of the very best ballparks in Minor League Baseball,” said Frank Coonelly, Pittsburgh Pirates president. “The Indians are a first-class organization with an outstanding ownership group and front office staff and great fans who consistently fill Victory Field for Indians games. Being able to play our Division rival Cincinnati Reds in Indianapolis is the perfect way to celebrate the extension of our long-standing affiliation with the Indians organization, its fans and the entire Indianapolis community."
“We’re looking forward to returning to Victory Field this spring,” said Reds President of Baseball Operations Walt Jocketty. “Our relationship with the team in Indianapolis as an affiliate dates back 75 years. Our fan base remains strong in that part of the state.”
Officials say the last time a Major League Baseball team played in Indianapolis was June 12, 1997. It was an exhibition game between the Indianapolis Indians and Cincinnati Reds.
