CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians plan to have 10,000 fans inside Progressive Field for home games in April.

The team announced Thursday they’re hosting 30% percent of capacity at their downtown ballpark, which was off-limits to fans last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Indians said ticket availability will be determined monthly until the ballpark can be at capacity — roughly 35,000 fans.

The AL team has been working with the Cleveland Clinic on health and safety protocols. Tickets will be sold in pods to ensure social distancing and fans will be required to wear a mask unless they are eating or drinking while in their ticketed seats.

Gates will open an hour before first pitch.
