CLEVELAND — If you're heading to a game at Progressive Field soon, you'll want to take note of some new changes to the ballpark's ticket policies.

The Cleveland Indians on Friday announced that all fans entering Progressive Field with mobile device tickets must use the MLB Ballpark App or StubHub app starting Sept. 1. That means using screenshots of your tickets will no longer work. 

Printed PDF and stock tickets will remain valid.

Only tickets purchased through Indians.com or StubHub will be permitted at Progressive Field, meaning secondary market sales and purchases are confined strictly to StubHub.

The new policies aim to reduce fraud and limit ticket scalping and illegal resales.
