If you’re a Cleveland baseball fan, you know Tom Hamilton. You may not know what he looks like, but you DEFINITELY know what he sounds like. Tom is the Voice of the Cleveland Indians and today the Tribe announced that he had signed a new multi-year contract extension. Summers at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario never sounded so good. A SWING AND A DRIVE!!!
The Home Opener is only 12 days away – are you ready for some baseball?
For the first time in 6 years we’ve got October baseball here in Cleveland! Yesterday afternoon the Indians won their 10th straight game and in the process clinched the top spot in the American League wild card race. They’ll host the wild card game on Wednesday evening against either the Tampa Bay Rays of the Texas Rangers. Let’s make sure The Jake (Progressive Field) is packed… Let’s Go Tribe!!!
Will you be at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario on Wednesday night? I know I will!!!

If you’ve read any of my stuff here, you’ll know that I’m a pretty big baseball fan. That said, Progressive Field (Jacob’s Field to me, but that’s another story altogether) holds a special place in my heart. I ran across this photo on Twitter the other day where user @GirlFromThe216 had is a her Twitter background. The sunset here showing through the clouds with the Terminal Tower and Progressive Field in the foreground make for an amazing photo.
What an amazing shot. Have you been out to Progressive Field yet this year? If not what’s stopping you? You could be missing out on a beautiful sunset such as this.
Baseball is back in Cleveland!!! The Indians opened up their home season yesterday at Progressive Field when they hosted the New York Yankees. The Home Opener (referred to by the Indians as Opening Day) sold out in only 6 minutes the day tickets went on sale to the general public. This picture was taken from my seats in section 521 and I was THRILLED to be there.
Downtown Cleveland was packed hours before the game with folks excited about Indians baseball. The weather was beautiful and even though the Tribe lost I think it’s safe to say that everyone is happy to have baseball back!
Today’s the day Indians fans… it’s the 2013 Home Opener!!! It’s been a long time coming and fans simply cannot wait to return to Progressive Field to cheer on our Tribe!
I saw this beautiful picture on Twitter this morning capturing the incredible sunrise over Progressive Field. I can’t for the life of me find the tweet so I can’t give proper credit. If you know who took this photo PLEASE let me know so I can give credit where it’s due.
It’s baseball season. Get out and cheer for our Indians. Let’s go Tribe!
As you well know, the 2013 baseball season is officially here! The Indians opened up the 2013 campaign on the road with a WIN in Toronto last night. If the buzz on Twitter for the Tribe was any indication, this town is electric for some Indians baseball this season!
And while Opening Day here in town isn’t until Monday afternoon (4:05 against the Yankees in case you’ve been living under a rock) I just had to post some Progressive Field love. This pic was actually taken on Opening Day 2011. As you can see it was a beautiful day. If the reports hold true we’re in for a similar day next Monday as well. Let’s go Tribe!!!
Who else is excited for some Indians baseball? Are you going to Opening Day on Monday?
It’s been a long and cold off season for Cleveland Indians fans, but we’re finally on the home stretch toward Opening Day for our beloved Tribe. We’ll be seeing a ton of new faces when the Indians trot onto the field next week and I for one an super excited about this team.
For quite a few Clevelanders (myself included) Opening Day is a holiday that we look forward to every single day from the time the previous season ends. Thanks to the Official Cleveland Indians Facebook page for posting such an awesome photo today.
It was announced yesterday that Carlos Baerga and John Hart will be inducted this summer into the Indians Hall of Fame. Hart was the architect and Baerga was a piece of one of the greatest teams that has ever stepped onto the baseball field… in Cleveland or otherwise. I know that I’m biased, but I’ve often said that World Series title or not, I believe the 1995 Cleveland Indians was the best team in the history of baseball. Period.
If you’ve ever heard Carlos give an interview, you know that, “Cargo Bagerga lubs Cleland.” And Cargo… I’m happy that you’ve made it to the HOF. You’ve earned it.
