The Cleveland Indians have announced that the home opener against the Minnesota Twins on April 4 has sold out.

Though attendance has been the subject of heated local debate the past few years, home openers have never been a concern. This year marks the 22nd consecutive home opener sellout for the Tribe. Tickets were gone within 15 minutes.

This will the first home opener ever that the Indians will go to bat without the Plain Dealer's support for Chief Wahoo. (A HISTORIC STANCE).

Today, the Tribe takes on the Texas Rangers at 3:05 p.m. in Cactus League play.
