Snow-pening Day

April 10, 2020 |

The first full week of April is normally a time of rejoicing in Cleveland as the city welcomes home the Indians for the first homestand of the campaign. This season appears to be a season like none other, unfortunately, so we are left to resort to archived memories to pass the time. Today, we reflect on Opening Day 2007, when the Indians were snowed out mere pitches away from completing an official Major League game, by definition, thanks to the handiwork of an old friend of the feather. – BT

The 2007 home opener scheduled in Cleveland kicked off in most unusual of fashion.

The date was Friday, April 6, 2007, and the Indians were set to open Jacobs Field for play for the first time that season with a 4:05 PM start against the Seattle Mariners. Hopes were high in Cleveland that the Tribe would rebound from a disappointing 78-84 record in 2006, just one season after going 93-69 and falling games short of the playoffs courtesy of a late September collapse in 2005.

Remembering Snow-pening Day

A little over ten years ago now, the Cleveland Indians had one of the more unusual starts to a home slate of games in the history of baseball.

The date was Friday, April 6, 2007, and the Indians were set to open Jacobs Field for play for the first time that season with a 4:05 PM start against the Seattle Mariners. Hopes were high in Cleveland that the Tribe would rebound from a disappointing 78-84 record in 2006, just one season after going 93-69 and falling games short of the playoffs courtesy of a late September collapse.

Postponed 2016 Opener Brings Back Indians’ Snow-pening Day Memories

April 5, 2016 |

Were you one of the tens of thousands who had headed into downtown Cleveland Monday morning or early afternoon, your eyes set on a pregame meal and maybe a libation or two before helping usher in the 2016 Major League Baseball season at Progressive Field, only to have those dreams squashed shortly before they could become a reality?

If you were, you certainly were not alone. And while it may have provided you with a story or two to tell in the future, that story will pale in comparison to those who endured the last postponement of an Indians Home Opener in the city of Cleveland.

It was Friday, April 6, 2007, and the Indians were set to open the home schedule that season against the Seattle Mariners in a 4:05 PM start. Read More

The Top 20 Moments in Jacobs Field History: Snowpening Day

May 10, 2014 |

The 2014 season will mark 20 years of baseball at Progressive (ie Jacobs) Field. It’s been a relatively short history (although with the stadium building boom in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Progressive Field is the 13th oldest facility in the majors). Did the Tribe Win Last Night has compiled a list of the 20 most memorable moments in the field’s history. We’ll count them down for 20 consecutive Saturdays.

14. Snowpening Day 2007

The Indians had won two of their first three games to begin the 2007 season, but when they returned to Cleveland from the South Side of Chicago, they found less than ideal conditions for baseball. It was, however, the kind of conditions for which football games have become legendary.

It was windy and snowing. The home opener was scheduled to start at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2007, but the start time was pushed back almost an hour. News accounts referred to Jacobs Field as the world’s largest snow globe. There were game stoppages throughout, but Paul Byrd – signed as a back-end starter for the Indians before the 2006 season – was working on a no-hitter.
