Cleveland Indians Volunteering Next Steps

Thank you for volunteering with the Bay Village Green Team to collect recyclables for the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field! Please follow all the instructions below.

What you need to do immediately?

  1. Download, fill out, scan, and return via email, the two background check forms at the bottom of this page.  Email the completed forms to Andy Finn at the Indians as soon as you sign up for a game. You will not be permitted to volunteer without these forms.  Note: If you have already submitted these volunteer forms and photo from a previous 2017 Indians volunteer experience, then you do not need to do it again.

  2. Add the volunteer time, date, and location to your calendar.

  3. If you are unable to show up for your shift, then let know as soon as possible.  

Arrival time?
  • You will be expected to be there 1-2 hours ahead of the game, and Jenny Hartzell will email you a few days in advance to give you the exact time you should be there and the parking pass.

  • You will receive a parking pass for the employee lot which Jenny Hartzell will email you a few days before the game.
  • Parking is limited, so be prepared to park elsewhere if the lot is full.

Meeting Location the Day of the Game?
  • You will meet at the Media Gate at the designated time, which is located at the Left Field Gate off of Eagle Avenue (Larry Doby Way). The entrance has a green awning with a hanging “Media Gate” sign.

  • Please wear khaki tan pants or shorts and comfortable shoes.

  • The Indians will provide you a t-shirt to wear while you’re volunteering that will be returned at the end of your shift.

  • Be prepared for the weather.  You may wish to bring sunscreen, a sweatshirt, a jacket, winter hat, or more if the weather is expected to be cold. 

Again, please fill out & scan the waiver and background check below and email it to as soon as possible. If they do not have this ahead of time you will not be permitted into the stadium.

If you have any questions, please email Jenny Hartzell at (Bay Village Green Team- Indians volunteer coordinator)
