A minor-league affiliate of the Cleveland Indians and the 2010 Triple-A national champions, the Columbus Clippers sport a roster chock-full of sphere-smashing, base-rushing athletic aces. From the reserved seating flanking the diamond’s foul lines, fans can watch stolen bases and snagged fly balls while airing out leather mitts of their own to catch the occasional renegade drive or overenthusiastic outfielder.
The Clippers call the green-grassed confines of Huntington Park home for their third season. This sleek, state-of-the-art facility can accommodate up to 10,100 devotees and their 20,200 foam fingers, feting fans with numerous promotions and ample atmosphere.
An International League mainstay, the Columbus Clippers have prepped future stars for the big leagues since 1977. The team has claimed 10 Governors' Cups over the years, most recently in 2015. The Clippers have served as the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians since 2009, helping players hone the skills that they need to succeed in the majors and impress friends during the piñata portion of birthday parties.
Up to 10,100 Clippers fans pack into Huntington Park, which still gleams with a new-stadium sparkle after sprouting up in 2009. During that inaugural season, the facility was named Ballpark of the Year by multiple sources, including BaseballParks.com and Digitalballparks.com, whose writers referred to the stadium's design as "the most exciting we've seen in two decades."
