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. BACKGROUND CHECK Click on this link and follow the directions. Required yearly by MLB. This is a different process than in past years.
  2. Picture for security ID. Simply take a Selfie with your phone and email it to with the subject line: Green Team Volunteer and your full name *If you have sent this in previous years, you do NOT need to submit this again.
  3. Add the volunteer time, date, and location to your calendar.
  4. 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 approximately 1 hour ahead of the game. Laura Crabb 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 Laura Crabb 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 next to the Left Field Gate off of Eagle Avenue (Larry Doby Way) and in the Gateway Plaza (between Progressive and The Q). The entrance is a glass door and 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, hat, or more - prepare for the weather.

Again, please remember to complete the steps for the background check and picture. If they do not have this ahead of time you will not be permitted into the stadium.

If you have any questions, please email Laura Crabb (Bay Village Green Team- Indians volunteer coordinator)
