The Indianapolis Indians are the professional Triple-A baseball club affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and has been in continuous operation since 1902. The Indians play their home games at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis, a 14,200-seat ballpark that has received numerous national accolades as one of the best minor league stadiums in the United States. The venue is located just west of the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium. Ticket prices run from $10-$16. The Indians baseball season runs from April through September.
In 2014 the Indians’ front office was named one of The Best Places to Work in Indiana by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. The 2012 and 2013 International League West Division champions led all of Minor League Baseball in attendance in 2013. The Tribe was also presented with Baseball America's Triple-A Bob Freitas Award for the best overall operations at the Triple-A level that year. The mission of the organization is to provide Indians baseball at Victory Field as affordable and memorable family fun.
In the franchises over 100-year history, some of baseball all-time greats have made their way through Indy, including MLB Hall-of-Famers Harmon Killebrew and Al Lopez, 1960-61 AL MVP Rogers Maris, future Hall-of-Famer Randy Johnson, and a wealth of current stars such as 2013 National League MVP Andrew McCutchen.
