Baseball season in Indianapolis is here! For many Indianapolis families, there’s no better way to spend your spring and summer than cheering for the Indianapolis Indians baseball team in downtown Indy. This Circle City Baseball Club is one of the finest Indiana sports teams.
Indianapolis Indians Baseball Games with Kids
Our family loves attending Indianapolis Indians baseball games for so many reasons. We appreciate the inexpensive tickets for our family and the excellent promotions that are offered throughout the season. Our kids love the electric buzz of energy and all of the things to do and see.
If you or your children are attending your first game, pick up a free first-game pin at Guest Relations located behind Section 109.
The ballpark opens up about an hour before the game, it’s a great time to walk around with your kids and see all of the activities. Sometimes you can try to get player autographs at the openings in the nets between third base and home base.

Indians Baseball Game Ticket Discounts
Our absolute favorite ticket option is lawn seating–we love the price, we love the space and we love the flexibility it allows for our kids to enjoy the game while stretching their legs, moving around, and just being kids. If you plan ahead and watch for special promotions, you’ll be able to grab a great deal on seats and even tickets that include food or get you to the game on a night when there are deep discounts on food and beverage.
There are even select days that you can get an Indianapolis Indians promo code for half-off tickets! That means you can get in for as little as $6!

Taking Babies to Victory Field
We’ve always enjoyed taking our babies to the Indians games. We spread out a blanket on the lawn (when it’s not too sunny or hot) and let them stretch out. Babies aged 2 and under get free admission, so we can enjoy the game and not have to pay for our baby. Just remember that kids eat free night is only valid for ticketed children.
You can bring in your own food and drink! Isn’t that a fantastic policy? Bags, less than 16” in length can also be brought into the stadium, so pack up your snacks and drinks!
There are changing tables in every restroom at Victory Field and behind Section 117 you’ll find a Mothers Room. This is a quiet place for moms to care for and breastfeed their babies in privacy. There’s a comfortable chair, a changing station, and a wash area.
Coolers are permitted in the lawn seating area, so that’s always been great for bringing snacks and bottles along with us. All coolers must be single-handled and no more than 16” x 16” x 8”. Alcohol and glass containers are not permitted. Fans wishing to bring a cooler into the stadium must enter through the center field gate or Cooler Gate located in the center field. Coolers are not allowed in the seating bowl but you can check your cooler with personnel stationed at the left and right field corners as you exit the lawn area toward the concourse.
Family restrooms are in section 110.
Family Fun Nights at Victory Field
There are so many themed nights planned for the 2023 season, my kids are having a difficult time deciding which nights we should go; the Dinosaur Train game, the Peppa Pig character game, the Cocomelon character game, fireworks nights, princess day, Nickelodeon Weekend or even Marvel Superheroes Night.
Safety First at Baseball Games
If you plan on enjoying an adult beverage, please remember to do so safely and make sure you have a designated driver. Visit the Coors Light Designated Driver Booth located behind Section 114 and receive a complimentary soft drink if you are the designated driver for your family.
Bringing Your Own Food to the Indy Indians Baseball Game
Since we typically sit on the lawn at the baseball game, we bring our own food and drinks. I’ll even pack baseball field favorites that my kids enjoy, like cotton candy, hotdogs, corn dogs, and soft drinks. You can only bring outside food or drink into Victory Field if you are sitting on the lawn or have a specific medical need. This is good news for my friends who have children with food allergies or sensitivities. Victory Field offers several concession options that are vegan and gluten-free.
Visiting Victory Field if Your Child Has Special Needs
For parents with special needs kids, it can be difficult to fully enjoy many sporting events. The Indianapolis Indians will do all they can to accommodate your family. Prior to the game, contact Sarah McKinney at 317-269-3542 or Indians@IndyIndians.com for more information or to arrange accommodations. For assistance during games, visit the guest relations desk at the main entrance or ask an usher for help.
There’s a sensory wall (provided by Damar), located in Center Field Plaza, that helps those with anxiety, PTSD, ADD, autism, brain injuries, Down syndrome, and more.
Lawn Seating with Kids
Not only can you bring your own food when seated on the lawn at Victory Field, but you can also bring a blanket to sit on. Chairs, umbrellas, and tents are not allowed. Our children are very young and so full of energy. Many of my best memories are attending Indianapolis Indians baseball games and letting them toddle around with kids they meet. If it has been wet and rainy the days leading up to the game, consider bringing plastic trash bags or waterproof blankets to put under your picnic blanket.
Seats in the Shade at Indians Baseball Games
The last four rows of all lower-level Box Seat sections are in the shade. The sun sets on the third base side of Victory Field.
Gluten-Free Food at the Indianapolis Indians Baseball Game
Sections 117, 114, 106, 103, and Center Field concessions sell gluten-free items such as bun-less hot dogs, peanuts, regular or caramel popcorn, and soft serve ice cream.
