Akron RubberDucks TicketsWhile Akron has been a part of baseball for many years, the city's relationship with the Cleveland Indians dates back to 1997. The first season as the Double-A affiliate for the Indians was abysmal as the team put up a 51-90 record. However, things quickly turned around, and the team has experienced long-term success since. While still known as the Akron Aeros, the team made the playoffs nine times between 1998 and 2013. While the Aeros did fall in the first round of the playoffs twice during that run, they also managed to win four Eastern League Championships while losing three. After 17 seasons as the Aeros, the team rebranded itself as the RubberDucks for the 2014 season. A 2009 fan vote that had kept the team named the Aeros was revisited by the new owner. The RubberDucks was selected based on the city's deep ties to the rubber industry. Since the name change took effect, the team has made three playoff appearances, including a 2016 Eastern League Championship. You can get your Akron RubberDucks tickets at StubHub today.
Who is the Akron RubberDucks' manager?2020 will mark Rouglas Odor's 33rd year as a part of the Cleveland Indians organization. Of his eight seasons as a minor league baseball player, Odor spent three of them playing in Akron. Coach Odor was brought in to replace former RubberDucks' manager Tony Mansolino, who was promoted and named manager of the Indians' Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers. In 2018, Odor was the Indians' Single-A manager and guided his team to a divisional title behind a 71-66 record. His first season with the RubberDucks saw Odor put up a 61-79 record while sending five players to the Eastern League All-Star Game. In 12 career seasons as a manager, Rouglas Odor has a record of 422-442.
What is the Akron RubberDucks' stadium like?Canal Park is the home of the Akron RubberDucks. The stadium with a capacity of 9,097 opened in 1997 when the team relocated from Canton, Ohio. While the stadium will be entering its 24th season, there have been some upgrades, including the high-definition video board in right-center field. The stadium also offers some extreme concession options, including a 21-scoop ice cream sundae. Akron has a long history of minor league baseball that is evident throughout the stadium. Not only does Canal Park display the RubberDucks' championship banners, but you can also visit the Greater Akron Baseball Hall of Fame.
