Jason Lukehart of Let’s Go Tribe reports that Progressive Field is about to undergo some renovating. The idea is to reduce the capacity of the park but make it more fun and welcoming.
The changes include installing a bar area in right field, creating more wide open space, taking out excess luxury boxes, putting the bullpens together and adding seats around them. There will also be a statue of Larry Doby installed, and many fans think this is much needed.
The changes will be privately financed and take out about three or four thousand seats, but it’s a great idea to renovate regardless.
