When the Indianapolis Indians opened their baseball season this spring, it was the 20th year for the new downtown Victory Field. Victory Field has the reputation of being one of the most fan-friendly ball parks in minor league baseball. A lot of people enjoy sitting beyond the outfield wall on the grass with their families as they take in a relatively inexpensive outing.Indianapolis has long been the center for all sports with baseball taking a backseat to none. Long before the Colts or Pacers came to Indianapolis, there were many amateur ball parks near the downtown area. Because of shifting populations most of these parks have moved to the suburbs but Victory Field sits right downtown along with the major sports facilities. Since the Reds are not having a good season this year, why not take in an Indian game?
