INDIANAPOLIS -- It's been 211 days since Victory Field was full of baseball fans wanting to watch the Indianapolis Indians. 

The Indians lost to the Columbus Clippers 3-0 in the Governors' Cup Championship in September, ending their season. 

Victory Field saw a record 662,536 fans at the ballpark in the 2015 season, and it looks to follow that up with more excitement with Thursday night's home opener. 

As RTV6 Meterologist Todd Klaassen said on Good Morning Indiana, it's shaping up for a beautiful night for baseball.

Thursday's game against the Clippers starts at 7:05 p.m., but the gates open at 5:35.

And if you aren't a baseball fan, that's OK. There are other reasons to hit up Victory Field.

To help celebrate the day, the Indians are partnering with local Chick-fil-A restaurants for a giveaway. Anybody who wears Indians gear to the restaurant will get a free chicken sandwich between 2 and 5 p.m.

The Indians have other promotions going on throughout the season, like Kids Eat Free Sundays, the Monday Dollar Menu and Superhero nights.
