INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (October 2, 2015) - The home of the Indianapolis Indians is now transformed from a baseball field to a football field for the first Gridiron Classic Friday. Football has never been played at the baseball stadium before.

Fishers High School faces Cathedral High School for the inaugural event at 7 p.m. under the lights. Tickets are $8 and children under two years old get in for free.

A time-lapse video shows all the work that went into preparing the field for a football game. The Indians grounds crew completed the transformation in just a matter of days.

In just two weeks, another high school football game will be played at Victory Field.  The match-up between Brownsburg High School and Hamilton Southeastern High School is scheduled for 10/16.

Jon Glesing shared some of the details about the special games during FOX 59 Morning News.
