The Cleveland Indians certainly have plenty of reasons to be optimistic heading into the 2017 season.

The club is the reigning American League champ, landed one of the hottest free-agent bats in Edwin Encarnacion during the offseason, and announced Friday that it will host the 2019 All-Star Game at Progressive Field.

All of that fanfare surrounding the club has generated significant interest at the gate, with owner Paul Dolan telling reporters Friday there’s been a significant jump in season-ticket holders over the winter.

“We’ve gone from about 8,500 season tickets last year to approaching 11,000 (this year),” Dolan said, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.

Despite winning the division by eight games last year, the Indians struggled with attendance during the regular season. They averaged 19,650 fans per game, good for 28th in the majors.
