(Cleveland) - Some have called it Cleveland's National Holiday. The Indians have their home opener with the Minnesota Twins this afternoon at 3:05 at Progressive Field.

This sold-out home opener is a bit special, as it's the 20th anniversary of the ballpark's first home opener on April 4, 1994. That day, the Indians faced the Seattle Mariners at what was then called Jacobs Field. President Bill Clinton threw out the ceremonial first pitch and the Tribe broke in the new ballpark with a win.

Danny Salazar will get the ball for the Tribe. The Indians come into the series 2-1 after starting the season by taking two from the Oakland A's. The Twins are 1-2 on the young season.

WTAM 1100 is broadcasting live from Progressive Field all day. You can hear the game called by Tom Hamilton and Jim Rosenhaus starting at 3:05 p.m.
