Still having a hard time getting over last night’s sweep. Not sure why but this season’s postseason slump hurts worse than previous years. Maybe it’s cause no one that has a job got to watch any of the games? Talk about a terrible schedule. Oh well… I’m an Astros fan the rest of the way.
Still love me some Tribe… and now it’s officially Browns and Cavs season in the CLE.
Summer is coming to a close and it’s TRIBE time. The Indians clinched a playoff berth last weekend and Jason Kipnis ended last night’s game with a HUGE exclamation point… a GRAND SLAM walk off which also happened to be his 1,000th career hit.
I love the Jake… but this is what I think about when I think “ballpark”. Cleveland Stadium, commonly known as Municipal Stadium or Lakefront Stadium, was a multi-purpose stadium built to accommodate both baseball and football. The stadium opened in 1931 and was a four-time host of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, one of the host venues of the 1948 and 1954 World Series, and the site of the original Dawg Pound, Red Right 88, and The Drive.
Got a favorite memory Municipal Stadium? Share them in the comments.
NOTE: I’m not trying to reignite the Chief Wahoo debate with this post. I ran across this photo when reading a story from back in May about how a protester got busted stealing federal grant money. The photo itself is awesome regardless of your feelings of Wahoo.
The Indians continue their quest for a World Series title this evening as they host Game #1 vs. the Chicago Cubs. Cleveland is going to be ROCKING tonight. Not only are the Indians hosting the Series, but the Cavaliers will be opening up their season and getting their championship rings!
Roberto Perez seemed to be everywhere last night as the Indians beat the Red Sox in game one of the ALDS. He hit home runs, he was involved in plays at the plate, he was tagging up when he shouldn’t have and brought back memories of Carlos Baerga with a slide into second base that hurt to watch.
The series continues this afternoon at 4:30 at Progressive Field.
With their 7-4 victory over the Tigers on Monday night, the Indians clinched the 2016 AL Central title and they’re back in the playoffs! This is the first time since the 2013 season the Tribe has been to the post season and the first time since 2007 that they’ve won the division.
I ran across this on Facebook this morning when Carrie Nagy Swain added it as her cover photo.
Indians playoff tickets went on sale the other day and sold out within an hour. Progressive Field should be rocking!
