Progressive Field

Progressive Field was ranked as Major League Baseball's best ballpark in a 2008 Sports Illustrated fan poll. The ballpark is informally referred to as The Jake, based on its original name, Jacobs Field (after former team owners Richard and David Jacobs). It was known by that name since its inaugural season in 1994, until it was changed to Progressive Field before opening day 2008.
