Over the years, the ballpark has exclusively been used for Cleveland Indians home baseball games since it opened as Jacobs Field in 1994. It is actually still known as “The Jake” in homage to the original name. President Bill Clinton threw out the first ever ceremonial first pitch on April 4, 1994. The ballpark also hosted the MLB All Star Game in 1997.
