Indians vs. Angels three-game series to be played at Miller Park in Milwaukee
Playing field conditions necessitate change of venue
CLEVELAND -- Major League Baseball, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim today announced the 3-game series between the Indians and Angels, scheduled to be played at Jacobs Field April 10-12, has been moved to Miller Park in Milwaukee, WI due to poor playing conditions, player safety concerns, as well as fan comfort issues.
The Cleveland Indians will travel to Milwaukee, WI tonight in preparation for the three-game series (April 10-12), and return to Cleveland for a three-game weekend series against the Chicago White Sox that begins at Jacobs Field on Friday, April 13 at 7:05pm.
"Considering the combination of the playing field conditions at Jacobs Field, fan comfort issues and a concern about the integrity of the 162-game schedule, a change of venue for this three-game series is the most logical option," said Indians President PAUL DOLAN. "We would like to thank all involved, Major League Baseball, the ownership groups for both the Angels and Brewers, and the Players Association for their support during this unique situation."
The three-game series at Miller Park will be played as follows:
Tue., April 10 vs. LA Angels (7:05PM EDT, WTAM, IRN, STO)
