The Cleveland Guardians Major League Baseball (MLB) side has launched a new monthly pass, and has also announced that it has sold out its season opener against the Seattle Mariners on April 7. 

By selling out the season opener, the MLB side has sold out every home opener since Progressive Field (then Jacobs Field) opened in 1994, totalling 30 straight seasons.

The newly launched 2023 Ballpark Pass, which is available for $49 (£40/€45) per month, will enable fans to attend any Guardians home game with a standing-room-only ticket. Fans can also attend the home opener using this pass if they wish.

These standing-room-only tickets can be used at The Corner bar, the left- or right-field drink rails, the Home Run Porch and Heritage Plaza at the 35,041-capacity Progressive Field.

Attendees have also been reminded that only mobile tickets are used at the ballpark, with paper tickets, PDFs and screenshots no longer accepted for entry.

The Ballpark pass can be used for every home game, including high-demand and weekend games. Tickets are delivered through the MLB Ballpark app and fans can scan tickets at the gate for entry. The pass auto-renews each month, meaning fans do not need to make monthly purchases.
