Progressive Field is a Major League baseball park located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. It is the home field of the Cleveland Indians professional baseball team, and together with Quicken Loans Arena, it is part of the Gateway Sports and Entertainment Complex. It was ranked as Major League Baseball's best ballpark in a 2008 Sports Illustrated fan opinion poll.
The ballpark was named Jacobs Field after team owners Richard and David Jacobs, from its inaugural season in 1994 until 2008, when its name was changed to Progressive Field after its naming rights were purchased by the Progressive Insurance Company. Fans refer to the ballpark as The Jake, based on the park's original name, and since the renaming, people have infrequently called it "The Pro" or "The Prog".

“There is, I think, no point in the philosophy of progressive education which is sounder than its emphasis upon the importance of the participation of the learner in the formation of the purposes which direct his activities in the learning process, just as there is no defect in traditional education greater than its failure to secure the active cooperation of the pupil in construction of the purposes involved in his studying.”
—John Dewey (18591952)
